Dems’ mayoral candidate will be a write-in
Jamie Larson in the Register-Star reports that an error by Hudson City Democratic Committee Chairman Victor Mendolia will force mayoral hopeful Nicholas Haddad to be a write-in candidate in the Democratic primary on September 13. "Haddad, a registered Republican, was endorsed by the committee in March," Larson writes. "Because Haddad is not a member of the party endorsing him, the candidate’s petition process took on two extra steps. First the party had to file Haddad’s petition, which Mendolia did, then they had to file official partly authorization papers for a member of another party to run on the Democratic line; this was also done. Lastly, Haddad had to sign an acceptance of the authorization." “I filed the authorization, but we forgot to file the acceptance form,” Mendolia said Wednesday. “No question this is a screwup and we wish it hadn’t happened.” Mendolia also hosts "@Issue" on WGXC.
