Green Knocked Off Own Line

The Phyllis Green saga took another turn today when it was learned that Green, who created an independent line by the name of Community Pride, failed to file her acceptance for the very line that she herself formed.

After claiming that the Republicans were secretly throwing their support behind newcomer Richelle Pasceri, Green apparently sought refuge with the Niagara County Democratic Elections Commissioner, Nancy Smith, to guide her through the election process.

Smith printed Green's Community Pride petitions and her acceptance, and would have been responsible for the timely filing of said acceptance. This, as we now know, never occurred. Failure to file the acceptance is an immediate disqualification from appearing on the ballot.

Green vehemently claimed that that the Republicans were out to get her because Green failed to knock Pasceri off the ballot, so the question now begs: Are the Dems also out to get you because they (and you, once again) failed to cross your t's and dot your i's?

Green has been in office since the 80's and is making mistake after mistake. I'm not sure if that's indicative of her incompetence or her senility.

So did Phyllis not file an acceptance ... or is she claiming Nancy (Sharp) Smith screwed up? Either way, this just gets more and more fun ...

Which Community? Lockport or Florida? Serves her right. Elecion Law is sometimes complicated but someone who has been in so long, should know better.

Green saying that she intentionally dropped her bid to appear on the "Community Pride" line is a bold-faced lie.

She screwed up by not filing her acceptance, and would rather lie than admit the incompetence that has marked her campaign.

I would like to see the mainstream media interview Green, Kiedrowski and Nancy Smith get their takes on this.

I agree Sail Away. My hope is that the Republican Voters in that ward stand up and vote her out. She is one of the most self-serving politicians that I have ever seen.

Talk about back peddling. At least she fessed up from her previous lie.
