City Councilman Alan Gerson has been removed from the ballot, according to a source at the city Board of Elections.
Gerson was seeking to be reinstated during a meeting today, but that effort was not successful, according to this source.
Gerson, a Democrat representing Lower Manhattan, had been facing a spirited primary challenge from a few opponents, including Margaret Chin, Peter Gleason and P.J. Kim.
Gerson is the first sitting elected official removed from the ballot this election cycle.
Hopefully he won't be the last 3rd termer, either. And he did vote "yes" last October.
