Greenbush Party Returns
Once again, the Greenbush Party has filed Independent Nominating Petitions for all town offices being contested in this years General Election. The party first came into being in 2007 and performed better than any other party in the November election with more votes for Supervisor than Mark Evers got on any single party line. You may recall they tried to rig the election by placing his name on all 4 party lines leaving voters with no choice.
Some 350 signatures were filed yesterday at the County Board of Elections from voters registered across party lines and from all three of our so called hamlets. The petitions were filed by Michael Angelo who is listed as the contact person.
The slate is identical to the slate endorsed by the Democratic Committee, none of whom have secured their party endorsement and ballot line because the party has yet to hold its caucus scheduled for August 27th at 7PM at the Troy Elks.
Nonetheless, conventional wisdom says those holding both the Greenbush Line and the Democratic line would be a force to be reckoned with at the polls for they were the first and second highest vote tallies respectively.
The Greenbush Party maintains a website at greenbushparty.blogspot.com and have announced their filing on this morning's blog post.
