If it wasn’t bad enough that Democratic voter enrollment is soaring or that one of their most notable politicians (Assemblyman Mike Spano) just abandoned the party, the news on the financial front is also pretty grim for Westchester Republicans.
According to their the July 15th financial filing, the Westchester Republican Committee has a not-so-impressive cash balance of $613.97. And sadly, this figure is an improvement. The party started the year with a negative balance of $512.57.
The party’s dire financial condition is all but certain to cast a further shadow on the tenure of former Chairwoman RoseMarie Panio, who stepped down last month, and complicate matters for newly-elected Chairman Douglas Colety of New Rochelle.
It also means the Republican candidates running for office in Westchester this year will likely receive little support from the county organization – especially when it comes to raising money.
