Oneida County Executive candidate Michael Hennessey will remain on the Democratic ballot line in the November election.

A state Appellate Court has rejected an appeal by the campaign of County Executive Anthony Picente and the County Board of Elections to reverse another judge's ruling that Hennessy had enough valid signatures.

Hennessey is planning his own suit regarding how the local board of elections handled the process when it came to approving petitions for that line.

Hennessey says he was told by the Board of Elections that he was not allowed to be present while his petitions were be being evaluated, but, he says he has since learned that he could have.

Hennessey will also be on the Libertarian Party line in November.
