IN THE SUPREME COURT OF PENNSYLVANIA WESTERN DISTRICT
May 20, 2011
IN RE: NOMINATION PETITION OF SALVATORE "SAM" J. VALENTY FOR THE REPUBLICAN NOMINATION FOR COUNTY COMMISSIONER IN THE PRIMARY OF MAY 17, 2011 PETITION OF: PATRICIA J. KINIRY AND STEVEN R. MITCHELL
Petition for Allowance of Appeal from the Order of the Commonwealth Court
AND NOW, this 20th day of May 2011, the Petition for Allowance of Appeal is GRANTED. The issues, as stated by petitioners, are:
(1) Did the Commonwealth Court err when it permitted [candidate] to amend his nomination petition to correct a fatal defect in certain of the circulators' affidavits that were notarized without the circulators personally appearing before the notary in violation of the law and the public trust?
(2) Did the Commonwealth Court err by permitting [candidate] to amend his nomination petition because the invalid circulators' affidavits were a fatal defect not apparent on the face and thus, not amendable under the Election Code?
The case will be submitted on the briefs.
