                                                                                                                                                           FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 

Press Statement:   New York City Council candidate (31st District)- Marquez Claxton files an ‘order to show cause’ against the New York City Board of elections after they refuse to place his name on the absentee and military ballots. Following a successful defense of his ballot petition signatures and being placed on the ballot by Hon. Valerie Brathwaite Nelson, J.S.C. on August 17, 2009, the New York City Board of Elections is ignoring the court order that granted Marquez Claxton full ballot status.  Marquez Claxton states, “The Board of Elections printed and mailed absentee ballots and military ballots without my name on it.  Aside from blatantly ignoring the Judge’s order they are attempting to limit the choices of the constituents.  Their conduct borders on corruption and I will fight to insure that the people of the 31st District are not deceived by the dysfunction of the established political machinery. The New York City Board of Elections is not exempt from the law and they cannot be allowed to operate as a sovereign authority.  Whatever their ulterior motive may be I will not surrender my rights and the rights of my neighbors.”
