City of Newburgh candidates see Green, Working Families petitions tossed

Orange County’s elections commissioners invalidated the Green Party petitions filed by Newburgh City Council candidates James Thorpe III and Kevindaryan Lujan, and by mayoral candidate and City Councilwoman Gay Lee.

They also invalidated Working Families Party petitions filed by Thorpe and at-large Councilman Cedric Brown.

Thorpe, Kevindaryan and Gay had their Green petitions tossed because they are not enrolled members of the party and needed the party’s permission to seek its line, elections Commissioner Susan Bahren said.

She and Commissioner David Green ruled the Working Families petitions invalid after striking signatures of people who were not enrolled members of the party or not registered at the address given.

Those stricken signatures left the candidates short of the four valid Working Families voters they needed.
