Julie Lofstad Cleared For Conservative Ballot Line For Southampton Town Board

Rick Brand reports in Newsday that “a state Supreme Court justice has cleared the way for Democrat Julie Lofstad to have the Conservative Party ballot line in the Jan. 26 special election for Southampton Town Board.

The judge also ordered a rare court hearing to decide if Republican county elections Commissioner Nicholas LaLota should be sanctioned for filing a frivolous lawsuit

In his decision, Justice John Leo ruled that Republican candidate Richard Yastrzemski failed to file his lawsuit challenging Lofstad’s nomination within the 10-day limit. Leo also said Yastrzemski did not have standing because he is not a member of the Conservative Party, and could suffer no damage.”
