Thank you.

Yes, Thanks to all of the Republican voters in Orleans County that made the effort to get out and vote in the Republican Primary election on Sept. 10.

A special thanks to those of you who voted for Randy Bower, a Republican candidate for the position of sheriff of Orleans County. Because Randy Bower was the obvious best choice, and your desire to change the course of politics in Orleans County, it enabled him to win the Primary. Although close – 21votes – he was declared the winner (1,671 to 1,650 over Tom Drennan).

Another political upset in the county was that for Highway Superintendent, Town of Albion, with Michael Neidert winning the primary by a real wide margin over the incumbent ed Standish.

Congratulations to both Mr. Bower, and Mr. Neidert.

Now, all of us with a similar mind set, be it Republican, Democrat or Conservative, have our work cut out for us, in working hard to see that Randy Bower wins the general election on Nov. 3 and takes the position of sheriff of Orleans County. We must stay the course, pound the pavement, talk to the people, and just plain get out the vote.

Randy Bower, with the people behind him, like Chris Bourke (who would serve as undersheriff under Bower) will benefit the people of Orleans County as a whole, and not just the political elite.

My wife and I had the privilege of attending two “Randy Red Shirt Rallys” and the Primary day get together at Hickory Ridge Golf Course. The people that I met, and those that I observed, were individuals with high hopes for Randy Bower and Chris Bourke. There wasn’t a stuffed shirt amongst them, and the atmosphere was not the least bit arrogant.

All of you that have the “BOWER for SHERIFF” signs, get them out, if you want signs, call 659-8382, and I will try to get them for you. It is less than a month, we can do it, we have to do it.

Randy Bower has both the Republican Party line, and the Conservative Party line. Get out, and cast your vote on either of those two lines.

Thank you again,
Al Lofthouse
(Mr. Lofthouse is chairman of the Orleans County Conservative Party)
