Yorktown Democratic Committee Not Ready To Make Endorsements Yet

The Yorktown Democratic Committee met last night but did not make any nominations because more people were interested in running.

The Yorktown Democratic Committee met last night to interview candidates for town board council who are interested in running on their party line. No announcements were made because more people have expressed an interest in running. 

Vying for a nomination to run on the Democratic party line are incumbent , Yorkown school district teacher Sean Kennedy, realtor Jason Wilson, Yorktown Athletic Club president Rich Campanero and town court officer Ed Ciffone, who did not receive the  last week. 

Committee members met at the house of former supervisor . Four more people have expressed an interest, communications director for the Don Peters' campaign, Bill Primavera said. He could not disclose any names yet, but said the committee is looking for women candidates.

Committee members are expected to meet again next week to continue the interviewing process.

While the name of Sean Kennedy was disclosed as a prospective candidate for Yorktown councilman, I have learned that the announcement was precipitous and that Mr. Kennedy has in fact not yet decided to request an interview with the nominating committee. We regret the miscommunication. Thanks.

Thanks Bill for the information

"Looking for woman candidates"? Is that how the democrats seek candidates, based upon race, sex, religion etc....How about the most qualified candidate?
