Cromer will be on Niskayuna ballot

"There might be other people getting interested in the race as well," said Blanchfield.

"Whoever wants to can run if they want to get in the race," said Blanchfield.

According to Mansion, the Schenectady County Board of Elections gave his committee the wrong form and the case is under appeal.

"The appeal is actively being pursued at this time because this is an election law issue and the appellate division this gives these types of cases preference," said Mansion.

He said that he expects the appeal to be completed in the very near future, depending on how quickly the it can be completed by the court system.

"I expect sooner to be rather than later," said Mansion.

He said that regardless of the outcome of the appeal, they are in the process of having Cromer run on the Independence Party line as well.

"We feel that the people of the Town of Niskayuna need to have an independent voice," said Mansion."Even though we didn't have an adverse decision Friday, having an Independence Party [line] was one of the things we were planning on having anyway, so there are several ways that Cromer will be on the ticket," said Mansion.
