Democrats proclaim deliberative process to select 26th candidate

posted by Howard B. Owens in Democrats, NY-26.

Calling the GOP's selection of Jane Corwin as its choice to replace Chris Lee in the 26th Congressional District, Democrats today issued a press release saying they were taking their time to evaluate candidates.

Genesee County Democratic Chairwoman Lorie Longhany sent along the press release signed by all of the county chairs in the district.

The press release invites interested potential candidates to contact their county chairs if they would like to be interviewed for a possible endorsement.

Full press release after the jump:

Today, the seven Democratic County Chairs of the 26th Congressional District of New York released the following statement outlining the selection process for the endorsement of a Democratic candidate for the 26th District special election:

“The people of this district deserve a representative that understands our issues -- whether it's in our farm communities or the suburbs of Buffalo and Rochester. We are looking for a candidate who will bring common-sense solutions to the table to work on the most important issue facing our district, improving our economy and bringing jobs to Western New York.

The process we have developed to identify the best possible candidate to serve the people of the 26th District is a deliberate, open and inclusive one. We want to ensure that all who are seriously interested in being the Democratic candidate have the opportunity to be heard and to share their vision for addressing the needs of our district.

Unlike our Republican counterparts who seem to have made a rush to judgment, we believe taking the time to find the best person is of utmost importance.  Democrats are energized and excited and we are moving forward with the process. We assure the people of the 26th Congressional District that we will be ready with an outstanding candidate to run in the Special Election."

In order to be eligible for further consideration, if they have not already done so, interested candidates must submit their resume and cover letter to any of the county chairs no later than COB March 3rd. Contact information for each county chair is below.

Chris Charvella is my choice and I can vouch for his sturdy constitution. He'll take bullshit up to a point. I respect him for the fact that he won't cross that point.

Thanks George, but I'm not qualified and I'm enough of a grownup to realize it. I'm going to work my fingers to the bone for the candidate of my choice though.

I AM qualified to quadruple post though. Hell, if I can't work The Batavian, imagine how stupid I'd look trying to use Craigslist.

Some day we'll have like buttons on The Batavian, and Chris's last comment would have scored one. Normally, I delete duplicate posts ... in this case, it would spoil the joke.

LOL Chris I will let you slide on the quad post, and not knowing how to properly take a good pic of yourself in the mirror to post on craigslist, but just as long as you would not be a cowardly democrat that would run away from his job like a little child when something does not go his way trying to stick up for the corrupt unions. For the record, I dont think you would, you would stay and fight what you would believe to be the good fight. Impressed Chris? You got a compliment out of me :)
