Lancaster Supervisor confrontation on election day
News


LANCASTER, NY - Lancaster Supervisor Dino Fudoli was involved in a dispute at a polling place on Tuesday morning.

The confrontation happened at the Twin District Fire Hall with an off-duty Lancaster Police Officer. The officer told the Lancaster Police Benevolent Association that he overheard Fudoli tell Lindsay Weisenburg, who is running for Lancaster Town Clerk, that he would like to punch the officer in the face.

Fudoli tells 2 On Your Side that the officer got in his face.

After the initial confrontation, the officer recorded another exchange with Fudoli at his car. The audio was sent to 2 On Your Side, and you can listen to the full conversation below.

An attorney retained by Fudoli also emailed the following statement to 2 On Your Side:

Please be advised that our law firm has been retained by Mr. Fudoli for purposes of responding to the allegations of the Lancaster Police Officer, Rick Albert and the PBA.

Mr. Fudoli denies directing any threatening conversation or statements to or at Officer Albert.  Rather Mr. Fudoli was having a discussion with another running mate, when the Officer approached him and “got in his facr” stating to Mr. Fudoli in a threatening manner “do you want to punch me in the face?” This statement was repeated by the officer in front of witnesses several times, each time Mr. Fudoli refused to participate in this type of nonsense. 

Mr. Fudoli denies all allegations of any types of threats or statements made to or directed at Officer Albert.

Our office will defend any such charges brought against Mr. Fudoli as frivolous and move to immediately dismiss same.

We believe that this is yet another politically motivated attempt by the Lancaster Police and the PBA to influence Mr. Fudoli’s election results, due to their longstanding conflict over contract issues.

Anthony Parlato, Esq.
