Warren County Democratic Committee Announces Endorsement of Aaron Woolf For Congress and Elizabeth Donahue for Glens Falls City Judge

 After its Wednesday, March 5th meeting, Warren County Democratic Chair Lynne Boecher released the following statement:

"The Warren County Democratic Committee announces their  endorsement of independent businessman Aaron Woolf of Essex County for the 21st Congressional seat being vacated by fellow democrat Bill Owens.

"Mr. Woolf, an award winning documentary filmmaker and small business owner, brings a refreshing new voice to the Congressional dialogue. He articulates a faith in the independent spirit of the North Country and proposes capable solutions to the quagmire of ideas that have plagued the political arena.
Aaron Woolf represents the integrity, commitment and drive that distinguishes this district and will represent all voters well in Congress.

"In addition, the full county democratic committee endorsed unanimously Glens Falls attorney Elizabeth A.  Donohue for Glens Falls City Judge, replacing the retiring Judge Richard Tarantino.

"Ms. Donohue, a practicing attorney in Glens Falls for over thirty years, was  also endorsed by the full Glens Falls Democratic Committee and if elected will be the first female judge in Warren County, making history. Ms. Donohue has represented litigants in both civil and criminal proceedings and has served as a special prosecutor and is also on the Warren and Washington County Law Guardian panels. She is a past President of the Warren County Bar Association.

"Lynne Boecher, Warren County Democratic Chair"

Den Tarantino found a large and receptive crowd at the opening of the Adirondack Balloon Festival, first at the inaugural launch at Crandall Park, and later at the antique car show in downtown Glens Falls.   It was a busy afternoon and evening with Den meeting a surprising number of supporters urging him on.

Thumbs up on the campaign!

United Transportation Union Endorses Tarantino For Assembly!

Assembly candidate Dennis Tarantino announced today that his race for the open seat in the new 114th District has been endorsed by the United Transportation Union, AFL-CIO.

According to Samuel J. Nasca, New York State Legislative Director for the United Transportation Union, Tarantino’s history, credentials and “vast experience in politics and ancillary activities” well positioned him for the New York State Assembly.   

“I am honored to receive the endorsement of the United Transportation Union,” Tarantino  said.  “I also appreciate the contribution the UTU makes to our state.  I am grateful for labor support again and I look forward to working with the United Transportation Union in Albany in January.”  

  The union will be alerting its members of Tarantino’s candidacy, and will be working for his election November 6th, according to Legislative Director Nasca.  The union represents rail,   private and public transportation and aviation workers across New York State.

Great parade in Port Henry today. Nice to say hello to Congressman Owens, Assemblywoman Sayward and Town Supervisor Scozzafava. Really nice to meet the friendly crowds and walk with Penelope the Clown ("I want to go to Albany to get rid of those clowns!" bystander yelled back: "Good, but keep Penelope!") Off to Jay/Au Sable Forks for their parade on Labor Day.

Took some great pictures, too!
