Nevin Mindlin files appeal for right of candidacy

Posted: Updated:

Former candidate for Harrisburg Mayor, Nevin Mindlin, will claim a lower court ruling denied constitutional right of candidacy in an appeal of Dauphin County Court of Common Pleas' decision.

Mindlin and former candidate Nate Curtis, were denied a listing on the November 5 general election ballot by Judge Bernard Coates Jr., leaving a two-way race between Democratic nominee Eric Papenfuse and Republican nominee Dan Miller.

Coates said Mindlin's nomination papers failed to name a committee that would authorize his vacancy should he become unable to seek office, a requirement under Pennsylvania law.

Mindlin filed a statement of issues at noon on Friday. According to a statement from Mindlin briefs are to be filed and served by September 4 at 4 p.m. and arguments will take place at 9:30 a.m. on September 12 at the Commonwealth Court in Harrisburg.
