County Democrats endorse candidates for November

Oneida County Democrats have endorsed candidates for the Nov. 6 general election.

Chairman Mitchell Ford said the county committee is backing:

-- 22nd Congressional District: Dan Lamb.

-- 53rd State Senate District: Incumbent David J. Valesky.

-- 119th Assembly District: Incumbent Anthony Brindisi.

-- 101st Assembly District: Dan Carter.

-- 121st Assembly District: Incumbent William D. Magee.

-- 117th Assembly District: Maria Pavelock.

"I’m very pleased with this group of candidates," said Ford. "These candidates will help put the Mohawk Valley, New York, and the country back on the right track by creating good-paying jobs, protecting the middle-class, and fighting for the people of Oneida County."

The committee did not make an endorsement in the 47th State Senate District, which includes most of Oneida County. Ford said potential candidates are still being interviewed and there may be an endorsement later on.
