Conservative Party demands term limits, won’t back long-time local elected officials

The Orleans County Conservative Party has Endorsed Rocco L. Sidari for Coroner. That is the only candidate this year to receive that honor. We had others seek our endorsement but the committee decided to decline and here’s why.

The Orleans County Conservative Party Strongly believes in term limits. We pushed petitions for term limits along with the State Conservative Party. They went nowhere with the politicians in Albany.

The Founders never intended for a person to go into elected public service and make a life-time career out of it. Our committee strongly believes that the problems we have in this country are the direct result of career politicians that never know when to leave and will never vote to fix this problem.

Therefore, the Orleans County Conservative Committee will no longer endorse anyone who has held a current elected office for more than three terms. The people have demanded this for years and we as a committee are taking this step in hopes that other committees will follow and help to eliminate this problem of the self-important career politician.
