Board Of Canvassers Rule On Candidate Eligibility

(Providence, RI)  --  The Providence Board of Canvassers is determining that City Council candidate Oscar Vargas is an eligible voter in the city and can therefore stay on the ballot. Ward 15 Councilwoman Sabina Matos filed a complaint with the board arguing Vargas, her would-be opponent, lives in Warwick. The canvasser board also voted Wednesday to remove one signature from the nominating papers of Ward 10 councilman Luis Aponte after a complaint from a challenger. Aponte owes the Rhode Island Board of Elections nearly 50-thousand dollars in fines because of overdue campaign finance reports.
