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.”
