The Westchester County Republican Party opted not to run candidates in several county legislative districts, mainly so that they can focus their time, energy and money on key races, Doug Colety, the party chairman said this week.
The GOP won’t be running candidates in districts 2, 3, 6, 7, 10, 12, 16 and 17, which means Peter Harckham, John Nonna, Martin Rogowsky, Judy Myers, Vito Pinto, Tom Abinanti, Ken Jenkins and Jose Alvarado are getting free passes from Republicans. Read the story.
“We’re very optimistic we can win countywide races and pick up some county legislator seats,” Colety said.
