GOP candidate Michael Ragusa drops out of City Council race after forged signature accusations


Republican politician Michael Ragusa has dropped out of the race for City Council District 47 following allegations of forged signatures on his ballot petitions. 

The former GOP candidate announced he would officially pull out of the race on April 15 in an online post after Assembly Member Alec Brook-Krasny accused someone on Ragusa’s team of forging his signature on a petition in order to get on the primary ballot, as first reported by City and State. Brook-Krasny did not immediately return request for comment.
