Though former Buffalo School Board candidates Daniel Reynolds and Bryon McIntyre both said they intended to legally challenge the Erie County Board of Elections' disqualification of their petitions and gain reinstatement on the ballot for the May 6 election, only McIntyre submitted the legal paperwork to do so last week.
McIntyre submitted more than 2,000 signatures, but after protests were filed, it was determined he had only 654 valid signatures. Signature disqualifications included allegations of forgery and the listing of "numerous dead people" as petition signers.
Below is his legal challenge, filed in State Supreme Court and served on the Board of Elections. The court is expected to take up his case on Thursday.
