Village resident and former New Paltz village trustee Vici Danskin asked that the Village Board take “immediate action to relieve Jason West of the position of mayor,” after board members reviewed a file that she provided them alleging that the mayor committed voter fraud. Mayor West admitted to living outside of the village temporarily, while he tries to find an apartment within the village after his lease was up this past January. The mayor still signed petitions for Don Kerr and Rebecca Rotzler as a village resident and then voted in this May’s village elections: actions that Danskin believe constituted voter fraud, as only those who reside in the village can vote in village elections. Danskin said West’s actions showed a “disregard for the process for public business and the critical importance of valid elections.”
