Queens, NY. The Queens County Republican Patriots held a press conference on voter suppression activities at the Board of Elections, on Tuesday night in front of the Queens County Board of Elections office on Queens Boulevard. The press conference was attended by many of the 30 Republican candidates seeking access to the ballot for the June 22nd Primary Election.

The speakers were Republican candidates for public and party offices including Joseph Concannon, lead organizer of the Republican Patriots, Danniel Maio, candidate for Queens Boro President, Angelo King, candidate for New York City Council District 24, Margaret Wagner, Female State Committee candidate from 23AD in the Rockaways, and other City Council and Republican State Committee candidates.

Angelo King, an electrician and immigrant from Dominican Republic, who worked hard petitioning in minority neighborhoods to collect enough signatures to get on the ballot, railed against the efforts of Queens Republican Party leaders in collusion with Board of Elections bureaucrats, to deny him an opportunity to run for public office for no reason.  He held up a thick document, the summons to Queens Supreme Court that was taped to his door at midnight a few days ago, as well as the doors of the other 29 Republican candidates.

Joseph Concannon blasted the voter suppression efforts at the Queens Board of Elections, and alerted the media and the public to the Commissioners Hearing for Queens which will be on public display at 1:00 PM today. He charged that “130,000 registered Republican voters in Queens are being disenfranchised by an organized voter suppression program led by the Deputy Chief Clerk of the Queens Board of Elections and the political director of the New York State Republican Party.”

The Board of Elections Commissioners Hearing to determine which Queens County Republican candidates will get on the ballot for the June 22nd Republican Primary Election will be Wednesday, April 14th at 1:00 PM. The Commissioners Hearing will be livestreamed on the Board of Elections website and will be open for public viewing at 1:00 PM here:  https://vote.nyc/page/commissioners-meetings
