June 3, 1968
IN THE MATTER OF PATRICIA D. COLLINS, PETITIONER,v.WILLIAM D. MEISSER ET AL., AS COMMISSIONERS OF ELECTION OF NASSAU COUNTY, RESPONDENTS, AND THOMAS M. BRENNAN, RESPONDENT
Patricia D. Collins, petitioner in person.
Edward R. Yamin for Thomas M. Brennan, respondent.
Morris H. Schneider, County Attorney, for William D. Meisser and another, respondents.
Joseph Liff J.
Upon the foregoing papers it is ordered that this application to declare invalid a designating petition for a primary election is denied and the petition is dismissed.
The application is premised on the statement that one of three members of a committee to fill vacancies is an enrolled member of a party other than the party which caused the petition to be circulated. That circumstance of itself does not invalidate the petition (Matter of Brennan v. Power, 307 N. Y. 818; Matter of Johnson v. Meisser, 24 A.D.2d 719); and Matter of Richter v. Thaler (11 N.Y.2d 722) is not to the contrary.
