The bench: City Council District 49 race
Today's post is all about petition challenges. Ballot signatures were submitted and challenges ensued. Here is where we are at;
Tony Cosentino, the only Republican, is off the ballot
Rajiv Gowda was removed from the ballot by the Board of Elections
Tom Curitore's petition was challenged by Ken Mitchell
John Tabacco's petition was challenged by Ken Mitchell
Rev. Dr. Tony Baker, Debi Rose, Paul Saryian and Ken Mitchell seem to have no challenges and will likely be on the ballot. Since the only Republican failed to qualify for the ballot this seat will be won be by a Democrat or Independence party member.
