Unable to attend due to prior commitments, prepared statements were read from Republican NYS Supreme Court candidates Judge John Nolan and Judge Stan Pritzker, as well as Republican District Attorney candidate Mary Rain and County Legislative candidate William Bill Fobare.

Senators Patty Ritchie, Joe Griffo and Betty Little spoke at the well-attended event. Mary Rain will work hard for the citizens of St Lawrence County. Her law enforcement and courtroom experiences will provide her with the tools necessary to successfully prosecute criminals, Senator Patty Ritchie noted.
