Dansereau Fights to Stay in the Roselle Democratic Primary

Roselle Mayor Christine Dansereau has won her fight to be included on the ballot for June's primary election after Acting Roselle Clerk Lydia Massey rejected a joint petition Dansereau filed for herself and council candidate Denise Wilkerson.

Mayor Christine Dansereau and her running mate Denise Wilkerson this week filed a lawsuit to stay on the ballot in Roselle.

Dansereau was preparing for a reelection battle in the June Democratic Primary with Recreation Director Donald Shaw and former School Board Member (and activist) Archange Antoine.

But acting Clerk Lydia Massey didn’t accept the mayor’s joint petitions submitted with Wilkerson.

The acting clerk’s letter to Wilkerson reads in part:

“I am in receipt of your joint petitions for the offices of Mayor and Council-at-Large for the June 4, 2019 primary election. Please be advised that I am without statutory authority to accept these joint petitions for filing because said petitions are for different offices.”
