Judge Deals Setback To State Senate Hopeful Jones

John Roby reports in Press Connects that ” a state Supreme Court justice has denied a Tioga County businessman’s request for more time to petition onto the ballot for the 52nd state Senate District election in November…

Jones’ request centered on the compressed timeframe of the vacancy election. He had sought to collect the 3,000 valid petition signatures required for his name to appear on the Taxpayer Party line in the Nov. 3 general election, which were due to the state board of elections by Aug. 18. The petitioning period for the general election runs from July 7 to the due date, but the Senate vacancy did not open until Libous’ conviction July 22.”

The court  rejected Jones’ request, finding he had sufficient time and resources to meet the requirement.
