Syracuse Mayoral Candidate Raymond Blackwell Forced Out Of Race

Tina Yazdani in Spectrum News: “A Syracuse mayoral candidate’s dreams have been dashed. Raymond Blackwell was denied a spot on the ballot this morning.

County board of elections officials say he had hundreds of invalid petition signatures. The rule states that every Democratic candidate needs 1,000 valid signatures to run for mayor. While Blackwell has more than 1,000, the board says the signatures don’t all belong to registered members of the Democratic party, so they don’t count.”
