Harig stays on the ballot, faces Paladino in election

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — An 18 year-old looking to unseat Carl Paladino on the Buffalo School Board was in high spirits Thursday. Paladino filed objections against his opponent’s candidacy, but the Board of Elections had the final say

The board ruled that Harig will stay on the ballot after Paladino challenged his petition.

Each candidate was required to get 500 valid signatures and Harig got over 600 signatures. Paladino’s campaign manager, Erik Bohen, filed objections against over 300 of his signatures.

The preliminary report found most of those signatures valid which left Bohen contesting 145 of the signatures.

Harig told News 4, he only had to defend 16 of those signatures in which he was successful.

Both Paladino and Harig will be competing for the Park District seat for the May 3 election.

Harig said he’s very excited nd even tried reaching out to Paladino to send him well wishes.
