(L) Len Bernardo (R) James Quigley
The GOP has backed Len Bernardo to be their candidate for County Executive and James Quigley for County Comptroller. Bernardo, an Independent was appointed unanimously to be the GOP candidate for Executive.
James Quigley, who serves on the board of directors for Montrepose Cemetery, buried his opponent Jean Jacobs by a vote of 111-19 to capture the GOP endorsement for Comptroller.
More sad than Jacobs' crushing defeat, as a Democrat I was pushing for her, is the fact that only 130 people showed up to the Republican convention... by contrast the Democratic convention which takes place on Monday will attract well over double that amount.
