Breaking down two Stec endorsements
October 31, 2012 - Chris Morris
In less than a week, you won't have to read another blog post about a political endorsement. At least until the Lake Placid village election in March.
But I wanted to highlight two endorsements of Assembly candidate Dan Stec, simply because they stand out from many of the endorsements I've reported on in this election cycle.
Stec, supervisor of the town of Queensbury and chairman of the Warren County Board of Supervisors, is the Republican, Conservative and Independence party candidate in the race for New York's 114th Assembly District. His opponent is Glens Falls lawyer Dennis Tarantino, who will be on the Democratic and Working Families party lines in Tuesday's election.
The first endorsement comes from North Elba town Supervisor Roby Politi. If you've followed Politi's career, you know that he avoids politics like vampires avoid the daylight (Happy Halloween, by the way), and it's rare for him to endorse a candidate. In fact, the last time I remember him endorsing a candidate was 2010 when Gov. Andrew Cuomo was running for office.
Anyway, Politi put his signature to a letter that appear in Monday's Enterprise, in the form of an advertisement paid for by the Committee to Elect Stec for Assembly. In the letter, Politi lauds Stec for his honesty and knowledge of "how local governments function and the importance of Lake Placid's contributions to the regional economy."
Meanwhile, the Glens Falls Post-Star's editorial board has also endorsed Stec, and it's only reservation in doing so was the "void his absence will leave at the town and county levels."
That's it for now. Happy Halloween everybody.
