Awful Board of Elections Cans Executive Director


After overseeing a “royal screw-up” of a primary, and printing inaccurate instructions on its ballots, and botching (perhaps purposely, some allege) a ballot for a City Council election that puts a Democratic candidate in the GOP row, and buying $200,000 worth of expensive new office furniture despite claiming a funding shortfall, the city’s Board of Elections had to do something to keep the pitchforks at bay. So this afternoon, it voted out executive director George Gonzalez. [Daily Politics/NYDN]
