Conservatives release names of endorsed candidates
by Carol Thompson
The election season has begun and the Oswego County Conservative Committee has named its endorsed candidates for county seats.
County Treasurer Fred Beardsley did not receive the endorsement of the Conservatives. Party Chairman Ron Greenleaf said he spoke with Beardsley Wednesday to let him know the committee’s decision.
The Conservatives expect to have their own candidate, Greenleaf said.
Legislature Chairman Kevin Gardner did get the endorsement, but only after much debate, Greenleaf said.
Other legislators receiving the party’s endorsement are Margaret Kastler, Milferd Potter, Shawn Doyle, Ronald Sakonyi, Daniel LeClair, James Weatherup, Linda Lockwood, Shane Broadwell, Michael Kunzwiler, Terry Wilbur, Dan Farfaglia, Morris Sorbello and James Karasek.
“Most of them have done a good job,” Greenleaf said.
There will be a primary race on the Conservative line for the District 12 seat, encompassing parts of the towns of Schroeppel and Hastings.
