The Jefferson County Independence Party tonight endorsed Sheriff John Burns and Judge Peter Schwerzmann for the offices of Sheriff and County Surrogate Court Judge.
In a meeting at Fort Pearl, the party's executive committee also reaffirmed their support for Congressional candidate Matt Doheny and Senator Darrel Aubertine.
The formal authorizations for those races come from the NYS Indy Party and so far only Doheny has been backed at that level.
Candidates must still gather and file petitions. It is understood both candidates in the 122 AD are gathering petitions and at least one candidate in the 118th....
None of those candidates were present tonight.
