Peekskill Candidates Back On Democratic Primary Ballot

PEEKSKILL, N.Y. -- There will be a Democratic primary in Peekskill after all.

The New York State Supreme Court Appellate Division ruled Common Council candidates Robert Sullivan and Luis Segarra can appear on the ballot for the Sept. 12 Democratic primary.

Sullivan and Segarra are also running on the Republican ticket as part of a slate called Peekskill United.

The Westchester County Board of Elections and New York State Supreme Cout Judge Sam Walker had ruled they could not be on the ballot, citing 60 improper signatures after a challenge from the Peekskill Democratic City Committee.

"There is no place in my hometown for big party politics," Segarra said.

Segarra and Sullivan will face Ramon Fernandez, Vanessa Agudelo and Colin Smith in the primary. Joe Torres is also running for Common Council on the Republican ticket.

The Democrats said the Republicans are attempting to deceive voters by depriving them of a choice on Election Day.

“The Republicans are attempting to deceive voters into supporting policies that will hurt Peekskill overall by concentrating power into the hands of a few," said Agudelo.
