A few days ago, people interested in holding a seat on the Rochester Republican Committee filed their designating petitions. Instead of voting for a party Committeeman at the polls, these designating petitions – circulated every two years – are the election.
From the current Republican Committee (below, left column), Terry Bernardo, Tom Ryan and Shane Ricks did not circulate designating petitions.
The right column shows the members of the next Rochester Republican Committee. Daniel Aversano was appointed Chair by the Ulster County GOP Chairman Roger Rascoe.
Good luck to the new Committee!
– Jon Dogar-Marinesco
Looks like Bernardo & O’Halloran have left the local GOP in shambles and no one wants to take on the task of cleaning it up.
So sad — the Grand Old Party in Rochester is dead.
Just leaves an awful taste in your mouth for politics
