The Cayuga County Conservative Party is inviting individuals interested in running for local office in the upcoming fall elections to seek the party’s endorsement.
The county will have all 11 seats in the Cayuga County Legislature up for election, as well as a countywide race for county clerk. Additionally, for the first time in many years, there will be races for mayor of Auburn and two Auburn City Council seats, with the possibility that no incumbents will be running for these positions.
In total, there will be approximately 117 town races, including positions of supervisor, clerk/collector, board members, town justices and highway superintendents.
Elected officials who plan on seeking re-election or individuals looking to run for the first time can request consideration for Conservative Party endorsement by e-mailing party chairman David Pappert at [email protected]. Requests should include the name and address as they appear on the voter rolls, an email address, cell phone number, and the office being sought.
The party will be conducting interviews for candidate endorsements, by invitation only, in late February. Incumbents who have endorsed before, or new candidates seeking the Conservative Party endorsement for the first time, must respond by Feb. 10 to be considered for endorsement.
