Candidate for mayor in Palmyra arrested on felony charges

A Palmyra man, who happens to be running for mayor of the village he calls home – has been charged with multiple counts of falsifying business records, according to New York State Police.

Officials say that David Husk, 58, of Palmyra was placed under arrest on Monday after allegedly altering time cards while employed at Breen’s Grocery Store.

The arrest comes just more than a week before Election Day, where Husk is running unopposed for Mayor of Palmyra. While the board of elections office in Wayne County says that his spot on the ballot will not be impacted a lot of uncertainty remains.

Husk was arrested on five counts of falsifying business records, as well as five counts of petit larceny.

The only thing that would have changed his status on the ballot, according to the board of elections – is an outright conviction. His next day in court will be on December 6th.

    worked with Mr. Husk over 10 years ago with Pal-Mac Bd of Education & he had a good reputation in the community for truth and veracity. I’d be very surprised if he were convicted. Perhaps this is a pay-back for leaving his former employer.
