Four petitions for government office in Coventry thrown out; GOP primary elections are tomorrow

COVENTRY – Four independent hopefuls for office in Coventry will not appear on the general election ballot in November because their petitions have been thrown out.



And depending on the outcome of the Republican Party primary election tomorrow, none of them – including current Republican Supervisor John Phelan – may end up on the ballot at all.

There will be primaries in seven towns: Columbus, Coventry, Guilford, Greene, Smithville, McDonough and New Berlin on Tuesday. All caucuses have been held for this election year. Election Day is Nov. 8.

The Chenango County Board of Elections office confirmed that the following independent “Liberty” platform candidates’ petitions were rejected in Coventry: Incumbent Supervisor John Phelan for supervisor, Lori L. Ball for clerk and Gwendolyn M. Hinman and Thomas A. Sisk for council.
