Shayne Gallo and I deposited our petitions Thursday morning to secure our place on the Ballot for this September's primary races. Reviewing the documents carefully is key to the process. Simple mistakes can throw you off with little recourse and from what I've heard, many of the other candidates for several positions are facing just that challenge.

My friends find it curious that I like the petition process. I find it to be not only a fun contest of sorts, but another excuse to get out there and engage the voters. If you collect most of the signatures yourself, you achieve additional facetime with neighbors who actually do want to meet you. 
Having said that, it is a comfort to have them in and secure in the hands of the BOE. Now you'll see the seven Mayoral candidates and the dozens of county and city candidates out there on the streets.

Don't miss this opportunity to ask questions of us at your own doorstep. It's a rare chance to nail us down on where we stand on issues. Well, for those who don't have a Blog that is.

I understand all of the Republican petitions in the City of Kingston were challenged. If that's the case, and they're really serious, Teetsel and Brown have problems.

All of the republican petitions were challenged by scared democrats trying to put a monkey wrench into the process. No such luck. Can you say bye bye..... Your time is up!
