Missing Signatures Cost Teacher Place on Ballot

GREENWOOD, MS (Ben Caxton) — A Greenwood area teacher forgot to do his homework and has been disqualified from running in the District 32 special election coming up on March 21st. Nick Onyshko had been expected to challenge FEMA contractor Troy Brown Sr. and attorney Solomon Osborne for a chance to occupy the Mississippi House seat through the end of the year. The State Board of Elections Commissioners, meeting in Jackson on Thursday, issued a ruling saying that Onyshko had neglected to put his name atop all the signature pages in the application. The seat is open after Willie Perkins Sr. resigned to become a chancery judge. A new election for the full term will be held in the fall.
