Justice Peter Barlet stated, “The endorsement of the Town of Warwick Republican Committee is most appreciated and is a recognition, individually and collectively, that we are doing the job we were elected to do – and doing it well! Along with my fellow Justice, we have streamlined the court process, secured thousands of grant dollars to upgrade the court facilities, and have administered justice fairly and consistently for our residents.”
Brenda Faulls stated, “My staff and I strive to make the collection of your taxes as efficient and cost effective as possible, always with a smile”.
Elections for Town Board, Town Justice, Town Clerk and Receiver of Taxes will be held on Tues., Nov. 7.
Warwick Republicans Endorse County Candidates
The Town of Warwick Republican Committee at their March meeting also endorsed the three County Legislators who represent the Town of Warwick in the Orange County Legislature. Barry Cheney, who represents District 8, Paul Ruszkiewicz who represents District 3, and John Vero from Chester, who represents District 10, were all endorsed unanimously by the 62 member committee.
All of these gentlemen bring unique qualifications to their positions. Barry Cheney has a long career as a civil engineer and is currently the Deputy Mayor of the Village of Warwick. Paul Ruszkiewicz is the only representative in the Legislature who is an active farmer. He runs a farm family business in Pine Island with his dad, John. John Vero has run a successful small business in the Village of Chester for many years.
The committee also unanimously endorsed County Executive Steve Neuhaus, District Attorney Dave Hoovler, and County Clerk Annie Rabbitt for re-election, citing their success in shrinking the size of County government, restoring fiscal order, and keeping taxes in line.
Bill Deprospo was endorsed, 36 to 7, in his bid to run for Orange County Court Judge.
