These are the write in candidates for Livingston County positions. Their goal is to get enough write in votes in the primary so they can be on the ballot as a regular candidate in November.
Livingston County Board of Commissioners:
Dave Buckland is running again for the Hamburg district. He ran well in 06 getting 44% of the vote. To put that in perspective, Al Gore and John Kerry got 42% and 41%. Don't count him out.
Shannon Piper is running for trustee. Linda Taylor is running for treasurer. Debby Buckland is running for clerk. All are democrats.
I'm quite concerned about Hamburg right now with the brutal primary out there and personal vendettas that seem to go on. Straight party tickets (as much as I hate the straight party lever) may save the day here, but if they are on the November ballot, we're going to have a battle.
Green Oak Township Board of Trustees:
Matt Evans and John Mogelnicki are both still running as write-ins after getting knocked off the ballot for not enough valid petition signatures.
Mary Pieragostini is running for trustee as a Republican.
Putnam Township Board of Trustees:
Michael Porath is running for supervisor as a Democrat. Clement Charboneau and Rick Bianchi are running for trustee as Democrats.
Putnam's a swing township with a lot of ticket splitters who go democrat local and republicans state/federal.
