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!
