Denise Williams, Chairperson of Luzerne County Board, which oversees the County Bureau of Elections issued a statement saying in part “As a fellow Board member, I completely disagree with Election Board member, Alyssa Fusaro’s comment (in relationship to this ballot drop box incident) that she “doesn’t think we are prepared enough to have these ballot drop boxes out”.”
