Judge OKs Town of Union Ballot Petitions
There will be a contest in the November election for the town of Union board.
A state Supreme Court judge has ruled the names of two Democratic candidates will appear on the ballot.
Some signatures on the petitions for Frank Palmisano and William Tastle had faced a Republican challenge.
Democrats had conceded the petition work had been “sloppy” but they maintained the problems were not intentional.
The judge concluded that while the petitions contained errors, they weren’t a result of fraud or deception.
The court ruling clears the way for a battle for the Union town board seats.
