Dennis Ede Out Of Town Of Union Supervisor Race
Dennis Ede is off the ballot for the Town of Union Supervisor race. Signatures filed by Ede with the Broome County Board of Elections were challenged and determined to be invalid, taking the republican out of the running.
Ede was present at the hearing on Tuesday morning at the Board of Elections and says he got misinformation on the signature gathering and filing process from the Broome County GOP. Ede also told the board he doesn't think general canvassers carried his petitions.
"I never got one single signature from outside canvassers. From anybody. And I've talked to people that were candidates that say they never saw my petitions in the packets. That's unusual that you wouldn't get one single signature from outside canvassers," says Ede.
With Ede out, there are now two republicans left in that race for supervisor. One of the other two, Kenneth Del Bianco, is also having some signatures challenged. The Board of Elections says they'll look at those later this week.
