The Niagara County Board of Elections is facing two lawsuits: one because it kicked a candidate off the ballot and the other because it didn't.
Keith Lindsay, a Democrat who wanted to run in a primary against County Legislator Owen T. Steed in Niagara Falls' 4th District, filed suit Monday. The board invalidated his nominating petitions Friday because the address Lindsay listed on his petitions was not the address at which he is registered to vote.
Meanwhile, Karen A. Strenkoski, wife of Wheatfield town justice candidate Gary E. Strenkoski, sued because the board didn't disqualify one of Strenkoski's opponents, Joshua I. Ramos. The commissioners split on the validity of Ramos' petitions for four party primaries, throwing out only his Conservative petition.
