Governor Cuomo has appointed a man as St. Lawrence County Clerk....His name is Gavin Regan and he is from Potsdam...He will face acting clerk MaryLou Rupp in the fall election....Obviously Mary Lou won't be acting very long, so the fall election is about who gets to be employed for four years.
Senator Patty Ritchie will pull out the stops in trying to get her friend elected and that's a big plus for Ms. Rupp.
Mr. Regan gets to run in a Democrat leaning county, but its not clear that party edge stretches to local races like this.
Also, will Mr. Regan continue a Ritchie policy of processing NYC registrations which had become a source of revenue to SLC ?
