Who needs Primary Challenge, anyway?

Many of you are aware of Primary Challenge, which was set up recently to run primary challengers against Erie County incumbents. So far, they have yet to announce any candidates, and their rules are somewhat restrictive. If you have ever been a committeeman of any established political party, you are barred from participating in Primary Challenge. Seems like a rather idiotic and short-sighted rule which might very well exclude qualified and interested candidates. According to WNY Media Network, several candidates have already announced that they're challenging incumbents.
"Kenmore Town Board Member Michelle Ianello, Kris Powers announced their candidacies today. It also looks more and more likely the 'Chicken wing King' Drew Cerza, will also throw his hat into the ring sometime this week. So far all this without the help of a Political action Commitee, who has yet to file proper paper work with the Board of Elections. "
