YONKERS, NY — March 22, 2018 — District 90 Assemblymember And NYS Senate District 37 candidate Shelley Mayer, a Democrat, has lost the designation of the Independence Party line in a ruling decided by State Justice Henry Zwack.
The ruling was determined after Hon. Zwack recognized that Independence Party process and procedure were not followed, that is, that the Independence Party designated Mayer despite the fact that there was no proper notice of a meeting called for at which a quorum, had it been gathered, could thereafter designate Mayer as their candidate of choice if she would have gained a majority of those in attendance.
The Special Election, called for April 24th became necessary when incumbent NYS Senator George Latimer won over then incumbent Rob Astorino to accede to the office of Westchester County Executive on January 1, 2018.
The case was heard in Albany. Yonkers Tribune has learned that the issue has been appealed.
Julie Killian is the Republican designee for NYS Senate District 37.
Senate District 90 is comprised of the communities of the cities of Yonkers, White Plains, New Rochelle and Rye, and the towns of Eastchester, Harrison, Mamaroneck, Rye, Bedford and North Castle.
