Sullivan Elections Commissioner Resigning

In the Times Herald Record, Steve Israel reports “Sullivan County Board of Elections Commissioner Ann Prusinski will be resigning, she said Wednesday.

Prusiniski’s decision comes as the county Board of Elections has been thrust under the spotlight because of allegations of anti-Semitism by Hasidic voters and supporters of developer Shalom Lamm in Village of Bloomingburg elections.J

Just this week, the BOE and 10 Hasidic voters reached a settlement in a federal lawsuit. The Hasidim alleged discrimination when the BOE tried to cancel their registrations in early 2015. Not only will the county pay some $550,000 to settle the suit, a federal monitor will monitor the Board of Elections for the next five years.”
