We were at the recent meeting of Bronx Progressives which took place in September 2019 the day before Samelys Lopez announced her bid for the 15th Congressional District.
At that meeting Ms. Lopez stepped down as the entire Executive Board of Bronx Progressives. Ms. Lopez then nominated eight people to take over for her on the Executive Board, even though there were only six voting members of Bronx Progressives present at the meeting.
Were those eight people ineligible to run?
Why is there another nomination and election?
Did 15th Congressional candidate Samelys Lopez do something improper while running and then nominating eight people even though there were only six voting members present?
