There will be a meeting of the County Committee of the Livingston County Conservative Party (LCCP) of New York State at 6:30 PM on Wednesday, May 6, 2015, at Peppermint’s Family Restaurant (244 East Main St., Avon, New York 14414).
At this meeting the County Committee will interview candidates seeking Conservative Party support in Livingston County during the 2015 election cycle. An open invitation to any candidate(s) seeking the Livingston County Conservative Party line is extended. Interested parties should make every effort to personally attend.
Livingston County Conservative Party Chairman Jason J. McGuire asks that each candidate interested in meeting with the committee, please RSVP by May 1st with appropriate candidate contact information as well as the names of any individuals who will be accompanying the candidate to the meeting.
McGuire says, “The meeting will allow for a casual question and answer format between each candidate and our committee. It is the culmination of a vetting process that our candidates go through.” McGuire says his committee asks that all candidates remain on scene following the initial round of questioning in case there are follow up questions the committee would like to ask before a vote is taken.
It is expected that the committee will designate candidates for county races that evening. With three already announced candidates for County Judge and only two available seats, this race will likely garner the most attention in Livingston County this cycle. However, the four available Supreme Court judicial seats in the 7th Judicial District encompass Cayuga, Livingston, Monroe, Ontario, Seneca, Steuben, Wayne and Yates Counties. As such, the County Committee can only choose preferred candidates and convey its desire to delegates of the 7th Judicial District’s Conservative Party Judicial Convention. The Convention, scheduled to meet at a later date, will actually designate the candidates in partnership with Conservative delegates from its encompassing counties.
Any registered member of the Conservative Party in Livingston County is invited to attend, but per the county party’s by-laws and New York State Election Law, only the votes of elected County Committee members will be counted.
