Louise Slaughter

Orleans County is saddened to hear of the passing of Louise Slaughter. Louise was dedicated and fair  and represented us well when we were her constituents. It was our loss when we were no longer represented by her.  God Speed, Louise, you will be missed.

NY-27 Petition Signatures Needed

All hands on deck! We have petition sheets for congressional candidates Nate McMurray and Nick Stankevich that need signatures from registered Democrats.  We need to get signatures here in Orleans County. Over one thousand are needed for each candidate throughout the entire district. We have until April 9th to collect them, as they must be in Albany no later than April 12th. The Congressional Primary will take place on Tuesday, June 26, noon – 9:00 PM.

If you would like to sign a petition then send us an email to info@orleansdemocrats.com and someone will bring a petition for you to sign. You can only sign one of the petitions, not both.

If you like, you can also help gather petition signatures. A person should only pass a petition for one candidate. Send an email to info@orleansdemocrats.com and we’ll get you a petition for the requested candidate. Note that you cannot sign a petition sheet that you pass, as the petition requires you to sign as a witness for the signatures that you collect. But, you can still sign a petition that someone else passes – and we can arrange for someone to bring you their petition.


Town Nominations Have Changed

The Orleans County Democratic Committee has updated its rules to change the process for party nominations to town offices. As of this year we will stop using town caucuses and switch to the primary election process. Candidates who desire the Democratic Party line for a town office will need to pass a petition. The Orleans County Democratic Committee stands ready to assist those who have an interest in running for office.

Village office nominations are now the only nominations that will follow the caucus process.
