Denver Jones Continues Fight For Primary Ballot

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

A Tioga County man who wants to challenge New York State Senator Thomas Libous in a Republican primary has won a court victory.

Denver Jones has been battling to gain ballot access for a September 9 primary.

Attorney Douglas Walter Drazen, who represents Jones, says the Supreme Court in Albany County has directed that the counting of petition signatures resume.

A previous court ruling left Jones 175 signatures short of the 1,000 required to get on the ballot.

In a statement, Drazen said the Jones campaign “still has obstacles to overcome” but the latest court decision was a “huge step in the right direction.”

Libous represents the state’s 52nd Senate District. He was first elected to the Senate in 1988.

Former Vestal town supervisor Anndrea Starzak, a Democrat, is running for the seat in the November general election.
