Legislator censored? Amy Tresidder ‘disappointed’ in Republican colleagues

by Carol Thompson

Oswego County Legislator Amy Tresidder has announced she may challenge New York State Senator Patty Ritchie for the 48th District seat.

Although she has not declared her candidacy, the Democrat said she feels the Republicans are becoming nervous about her potential run.

The potential candidate said she was “disappointed” when she learned from a Republican legislator that there is an attempt to censor her from speaking at legislature committee meetings of which she is not a member.

“I am extremely disappointed that my colleagues in the majority would put partisan politics ahead of open and honest government that works for the benefit of and in the best interest of the taxpayers of Oswego County,” she said Friday.

Legislators are assigned to two of the seven standing committees and Tresidder has been a regular attendee at most meetings since she took office just over two years ago.
