McDonough is now unopposed in Nov., 4 more years !!

Millan has a right to appeal and he most likely will. Don't count your chickens before they hatch.

Even if Millan is off the ballot, he has enough ammunition and know how to help the Independent council members win their seats.

Ok, McDonogh beat Hinchecliff by 2-1, but that was in a Primary and only among Democrat voters... if the republicans can come up with a strong candidate, or if Hinch runs as an independant, mightnt there be enough non democrats to go with Hinch and get Mc Donough out??

Does anyone think these independent council candidates have a chance?

I believe that the Mayor is on the ropes and knows it. He is pulling strings at the County to try to get Millan off the ballot. Hopefully Millan gets a judge to put him back. Look at Mangin in Kearny. Santos pulled strings and Inclan - the Hudson County Clerk the political whore he is went along with Santos instead of allowing folks to have a choice. They say he was short signatures but Mangin proved those folks were registered to vote and the Superintendent of Elections made Inclan reverse his decision. More of the same in Hudson County politics. Can't we get some people who uphold their oath of office.

Work Hard, Fly Right. Go Independents you can do it.

Well, even if theres nobody on the ballot, you can still find a viable candidate as have a write-in blitz. Unfortunately, trying to get 1000-plus voters to take part in such a perfectly legal scheme. Its worth a try if you want this guy out!

Wow how little these Independents know about our politics and laws. Pretty embarrasing when you dont know the rules yet you want to run this town and be the mayor. Who knows how many infractions Milan would lead us to if he actually ran this thing!?!

He might have an excuse though, maybe he cant read our rules because got a total grasp for the English language yet-- :huh:

No other Independants can declare either, they had to do so by 4 p.m. on June 6th, so to the person whom said that hinchy would run is probly an Indepedent because he doesnt know the rules either.

Stick to what you guys know best, BITCHING AND MOANING.

And hey Fernandez, good luck getting write in Votes for your Pops, it's just funny to see you squirm, you have no clue what the hell you are doing either.

(For those of you who dont know what I'm speaking of, read todays Kearny Journal.)

County clerk rejects 2 petitions in W. Hudson

Thursday, June 15, 2006

By ROSE DUGER

JOURNAL CORRESPONDENT

HARRISON - The Hudson County Clerk has rejected the petitions of two independent candidates in West Hudson who filed to run in November's general election.

Hudson County Clerk Javier E. Inclan issued his decision Monday on the petitions of Anselmo Millan, who had filed to run in Harrison's mayoral race, and James Mangin, who sought a Third Ward council seat in Kearny.

If Inclan's decisions stick, it means that the two Democratic incumbents, Harrison Mayor Raymond J. McDonough and Kearny Third Ward Councilwoman Eileen Eckel, will run unopposed in November.

Both Millan and Mangin have vowed to fight the rulings.

In Millan's case, Inclan determined that the candidate and his wife, Josefa, who was the affiant of the petition, had previously signed a petition supporting Michael Hinchcliffe in his unsuccessful mayoral bid in Harrison's recent Democratic primary.

Their signatures on Hinchcliffe's petition violated a state statute, Inclan said.

Millan said earlier this spring that an attorney told him signing Hinchcliffe's petition would not jeopardize his plans to run for mayor as an independent.

A former Harrison councilman, who was ousted from his seat several years ago following a public feud with McDonough, Millan said he plans to obtain attorneys who are experienced in election law to fight the decision.

"They don't like it when people contest elections," he said of the McDonough administration. "This is not set in stone . I believe in this case, because it's not Republican or Democratic, that this is not about what's right and wrong in law. I believe a judge should give the opportunity to the people to give them more than one choice."

Millan's son-in-law, Michael Fernandez, heads the Friends of Harrison, an independent political action committee that supported Millan and a slate of three council candidates who are still in the running. He pledged to mount an aggressive write-in campaign for Millan.

"Whether he can be on the ticket or not, we will still run him," Fernandez said. "We're going to convince the majority of people to write in his name because he's the better candidate."

The challenge to Millan's candidacy came about through a letter submitted to Inclan by Gregory Castano, a Harrison town attorney who outlined the discrepancies in Millan's petition that the clerk eventually upheld.

McDonough did not return a phone call seeking comment.

In Kearny, Eckel lodged a protest to the petition of Mangin, a former Third Ward councilman whose bitter feud with Mayor Al Santos led to a failed primary bid for mayor several years ago.

Inclan determined that four of the 53 signatures Mangin collected from Third Ward voters were allegedly invalid, bringing him one signature short of the 50 needed to file a petition.

In a letter to the candidate, Inclan said that three people who signed Mangin's petition are not Third Ward voters and that a fourth did not sign his own name. Inclan alleged that the voter's wife instead signed for her husband.

Mangin, however, disputed those claims, saying he personally registered one of the assignees several years ago and handed in the voter registration materials of another to Inclan's office hours before the petition was filed. He also said he was present when the husband and wife signed his petition.

"This is ridiculous," said Mangin. "First of all, how are they going to prove that she signed for him? I went to their house personally and they both signed."

Mangin declined to comment further until he could review a written copy of the decision.

Guest Pathetic

To me this is just a pathetic means of grasping at straws. If the mayor didn't have anything to hide or lose he wouldn't be putting up such a fight. He knows that the people in this town or slowly going against him so he will do everything in his power to get them out. Just picture him sitting there grinning when he was told, look we can do this................
