RIDGEWAY – Republicans in Ridgeway interested in serving in elected positions at the town and county level are welcome to seek an endorsement from the Republican Committee.

Three positions on the Town Board are up for election and the incumbents are expected to run again. That includes Town Supervisor Brian Napoli and Town Council members Paul Blajszczak and Mary Woodruff.

The town justice position will also be on the ballot in November. Joe Kujawa was appointed to the post in January.

The Ridgeway Republican Committee also expects to meet with candidates for County Legislature, sheriff and coroner, and the town committee will make a recommendation to the Orleans County Republican Committee for those positions, said Karen Kaiser, the Ridgeway Republican Committee vice chairwoman.

She encouraged Ridgeway Republicans interested in seeking a town or county position to contact her at 585-590-6410 or by email at karen.lahnen@gmail.com, or they can call GOP Chairman Richard Fisher 585-356-5719.

“We want to make sure anyone interested is heard from,” Kaiser said.

April 15 is the deadline to apply.
