Message from the Chairman

Dear Friends and Supporters:

Congratulations to all of our winning candidates.  The Republican Party had great success on Election Day.  Mary Farley and Martin Auffredou won their Supreme Court Justice seats with each receiving more than 15,000 votes in Saratoga County.  Mary was the top vote getter district wide and Martin was a close second.  Dan Kuhn ran unopposed for County Coroner.  We won multiple town elections without opposition, which is a testament to the good work of our elected officials and town Republican Committees.  We won three contested races for town Supervisor.  Vince Delucia had a huge win in Malta, Mo Wright easily defeated his opponent in Hadley and Gardner Congdon defeated a long term Democrat in Moreau.  On January 1st the Republican Party will hold a 21 – 2 majority on the Saratoga County Board of Supervisors.  We won contested races for Town Board seats in Malta, Milton, Moreau and Stillwater.  Skip Scirocco was re-elected to the City Council in Saratoga Springs.

I want to thank each and every committee member who circulated petitions and worked to get our candidates elected during this campaign.  A special thank you goes to the Town/City Chairs for holding campaign rallies and events and getting out the vote.  The support of the Women’s Club, the County Committee officers and all of the County elected officials contributed to our successful campaign.

Thank you to all our candidates who ran on the Republican line.  You each sacrificed a great deal to campaign over several months representing the Republican Party.  To run for office is admirable, to serve in office is honorable and your efforts are greatly appreciated.

Now that the election is over we need to remove our campaign signs as quickly as possible.  If you see Republican signs in your travels please stop and take them down.  The Farley and Auffredou signs can be thrown out.

The Chairman’s Club will hold a Veteran’s Day dinner at Panza’s on Saratoga Lake on 11/11 and the Women’s Club will hold a holiday party at Bravo on 12/11, details can be found on our website.

On behalf of the County Committee Officers, thank you again for all that you did to make this campaign season a success.

John Herrick
