SOMERS, N.Y. – The Somers Republican Party has unveiled its slate of candidates for the 2017 election.
The ticket will feature mostly incumbents, as Supervisor Rick Morrissey, Councilman Anthony Cirieco and Councilman Bill Faulkner will seek re-election.
“Each and every one of them individually adds a lot of substance to the board,” said Republican Party Chair Jim Chisholm. “To me, it was a dream team.”
Deputy Tax Receiver Michelle McKearney will run for receiver of taxes, hoping to succeed Joan Ribaudo, who will not seek re-election.
On the county level, the party endorsed County Executive Rob Astorino and County Legislator Francis Corcoran in their re-election bids. Chisholm himself was endorsed for county clerk, as he looks to unseat three-term incumbent Tim Idoni.
“I am pleased with the selection, as is the entire committee,” Chisholm said. “The feeling of harmony and unity was in the air.”
