Zisman Will Appear On the Ballot in the September 14, 2010 Primary Election
YONKERS, NY, August 5, 2010 — Phil Zisman, formerInspector General for the City of Yonkers and current candidate for Yonkers City Court Judge, has qualified for the September 14, 2010 primary election. In a decision dated August 4, 2010, the Board of Elections rejected the YonkersDemocratic Party’s challenge and determined that Zisman’s petitions contained more than the required 1,000 signatures of registered Yonkers Democrats.
Zisman stated that it was clear from the very beginning that the Party’s challenge was without merit, and he never doubted that the Board of Elections would rule in his favor. “I knew the Party’s challenge to my petitions lacked any credibility. They even claimed that my wife’s and my own signatures were invalid, when we have been registered Yonkers Democrats in good standing for almost 20 years.”
Zisman said he believed the challenge should never have been brought, and that the Board of Elections has now repudiated the Party’s attempt to knock him off the ballot. “Democrats should not fight to keep fellow Democrats off of the ballot when it is clear that the requirements to qualify for the election have been met. The voters should decide. That’s how democracy works.” Zisman said.
Zisman will be campaigning hard throughout the City in the days leading up to the primary and looks forward to meeting as many voters as possible.
