City Councilman Frank Vescera and former Councilman and Comptroller candidate James Zecca have been denied permission to appeal a recent court ruling that deemed them ineligible to appear on the ballot on the Democratic party line during Tuesday’s primary.

The Utica Observer-Dispatch is reporting that Harris Samuels, an assistant county attorney who handled the case, said the ruling was announced yesterday.

Jim Zecca is scheduled to join us on WIBX First News with Keeler in the Morning on Friday, September 5, 2014.
