Pressley presses on
Friday, February 6, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano
Those who miss the craziness of last year’s City Council election might want to swing by Tres Amigos on Sunday, Feb. 15, when Dr. Laura Pressley will continue her 2014 fight to win an election she lost in December. Pressley is hosting a “meet and greet” to discuss her recently filed election lawsuit, answer questions and, apparently, fundraise. From her invitation, which links to the “donate” page of her campaign website: “Our election lawsuit is related to the fact that the numbers don’t add up and we are asking for help from the district court to resolve these unfortunate discrepancies.” Pressley lost the runoff election for Council by 1,290 votes, which was confirmed by a Pressley-requested recount. Pressley’s complaints filed with the Secretary of State have been rejected. On Jan. 29, she filed a lawsuit contesting the election. Details on the meet and greet can be found here.
