Brindisi Unanimous Pick As Dems Assembly Candidate

Utica, NY (WIBX) – Between 80 and 90 Oneida County Democratic Committee members unanimously supported Anthony Brinidisi as the party’s pick to run for the Assembly’s 116th district, according to committee chairman William Barry.

Brindisi and Maynard Cosnett were the only two candidates to formally screen for the democratic endorsement at Thursday night’s meeting, Barry said.

Paul Grande, the party’s committee chairman in the city of Rome, and Daniel Sullivan, a Whitestown Councilman, both wrote letters expressing interest in the seat but withdrew their names this week, Barry said.

On Wednesday, Utica Mayor David Roefaro also withdrew his name from consideration, saying he wanted to complete many projects that are underway in the city.

Roefaro spoke at the committee meeting Thursday, thanking committee members and saying there was still a lot to finish in Utica, according to Barry.

Brinidisi, 32, is a local attorney and first term member of the Utica School Board.

Oneida County Republicans may select a candidate as early as next month.

RoAnn Destito, a Democrat, has been nominated by Governor Cuomo to be the commissioner of the State Office of General Services, and is awaiting confirmation by the state senate.
