In their final determination after review of objections to designating petitions filed by Todd Casella, who is running for Yates County District Attorney, the Yates County Board of Elections ruled last week his Conservative Party petition null and void and his Independence Party and Reform Party petitions invalid.
Yates County District Attorney Valerie Gardner filed designating petitions for re-election containing over 900 valid signatures from registered county voters. Gardner announced earlier this year she would seek re-election to another four year term. She was first elected in 2013.
Casella announced his campaign back in April.
