More typical Amherst election anecdote

A moment after taking the photo of the vandalized Hubley lawnsign Select man Kusner rode in on his mountain bike. Ironically, I asked him to pose with his rolling campaign billboard thinking this is—albeit a tad offbeat—an example of positive campaigning.

Of course after posing he heading directly up the hill to Crocker Farm School main entrance (Precinct 7 voting place) and proceeded to violate the 150 foot restricted area around voting booths.

And Mr. Kusner, of all people, should know well this rule as he almost got into a physical confrontation with town clerk Anna Maciaszek three years ago over her ordering the removal of campaign signs to close to a voting precinct in town center.

Thanks for the visual. I already received a complaint about this and I have advised the Town Manager of my obligations to uphold the 150’ law. My latest information is that Mr. Kusner has left Precinct 7. Hopefully he will not show up somewhere else.
