Queens County GOP Chairman Phil Ragusa has dropped his lawsuit claiming that the new Queens County Republican Commissioner for the Board of Elections was wrongly appointed, according to a document obtained by the New York Daily News.
Ragusa and ousted commissioner Judith Stupp were alleging that Councilman Eric Ulrich and two other members of the Republican cacus had no right to vote for the new commissioner Michael Michel because Stupp had already been selected to serve another term.
Even though Ragusa said he signed the required Certificate of Recommendation and sent it by mail in time, the caucus claimed that the reappointed wasn’t filed correctly.
