I meant to put this up the other day, but Republican actor and activist Anthony J. Ribustello has filed over 5,000 signatures for ballot access in the special election for borough president.
As this is a non-partisan election, candidates must choose their own, unique party name. Ribustello has chosen "People First."
Ribustello said that he has gotten a great response from those he has approached over the last two weeks, and that moving forward he would bring his campaign across The Bronx, attending meetings with neighborhood groups and community associations.
“People are tired of the status quo,” said Ribustello.
