Debby Mayer reports in the Columbia Paper the Germantown Republican Committee has chosen seven candidates to run for town offices November 5. Twenty-eight registered Republican voters attended a caucus last month, endorsing Joel Craig for town supervisor, Andrea Dunn and Matthew Phelan for two vacant town board seats and Joyce Vale for town clerk. The caucus also endorsed incumbent Highway Superintendent Richard Jennings, Tax Collector Janice Mullins and Town Justice Wendy Nack-Lawlor. GOP Committee chairman George Sharpe said, “These candidates want to see our community grow while they follow our traditional Republican values of lower taxes, support of private-sector jobs, more grants and less spending of taxpayer money and protection of our rights and freedoms, instead of restricting them.” Read the full story in the Columbia Paper.
