— “I asked those questions because I’m committed to the two-party system and I cannot agree with the prospect of one candidate for any elected office having every line on the ballot and thereby robbing the people of this town the right to choose their elected officials,” Kuhn later said.

When Kotary ran for town supervisor in 2011, he secured both the Democratic and Republican endorsements, which rankled some members in both parties. Clarkson cited it as his primary reason for waging a primary challenge on the Democratic line.

“I wanted people on the record unambiguously,” said Kuhn. “I have no objection to a primary for anyone, but I don’t want someone to get all the lines or trying to run on both of the two major party lines. To me, that is not a democratic election.”
