Miner submits petitions for ballot line for NY governor

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Former Syracuse Mayor Stephanie Miner has submitted more than 40,000 voter signatures to secure her place as a candidate for governor on the November ballot.
Miner was elected to lead Syracuse as a Democrat but she is running for governor as an independent on the Serve America Movement ballot line. She says voters are fed up with politics as usual and that the major parties are to blame.
She submitted her ballot petitions to state election officials on Tuesday, as did Michael Volpe, who is running for lieutenant governor as an independent.
Miner will face Republican candidate Marc Molinaro, Green Party candidate Howie Hawkins and the winner of next month’s Democratic primary between two-term incumbent Gov. Andrew Cuomo and former “Sex and the City” star Cynthia Nixon.
