Board Of Elections Petition Update

The Bronx Chronicle, “with a little help from our friends”, in this case, friend and daily reader Anthony Rivieccio who runs the Northwest Bronx Democratic Club and has been around in politics since a Bronx campaign in 1989.  He has provided the following recent updates from the Board of Elections on rulings of candidates, whether they will be on the September primary ballot or not based on fulfilling the requirements as established in New York State Election Law, which has unique regulations for New York City. (Full disclosure: I have been a Board of Elections employee, and will just be printing information valid at of 9:45 a.m. as provided from friend Ant’ny.I’m just the messenger here, not “the writer”.)

77th A.D. candidate Patrice was ruled on the ballot having more than the 500 required signatures.
