Utica Comptroller’s Race: James Zecca Endorsed By Oneida County Conservative Party

Kristine Bellino, WIBX

In a move being described by some as interesting, the Oneida County Conservative Party is endorsing the Democratic candidate for Utica Comptroller, James Zecca.

In a written statement released by Zecca’s campaign the chairman of the Oneida County Conservative Party, Julie Miller, said that the Zecca “has stood against increased spending and subsequent over-taxation of city residents.  He has been in favor of realistic budgets that hold the line on taxes so as not to place undue burden on taxpayers during these difficult economic times.”

The party has previously endorsed both Zecca and his opponent, Bill Morehouse, in separate races.  Miller says, however, that in the latest political contest they are backing Zecca because he is “the right choice for comptroller.”

The Conservative Party candidate, Rocco Garro, had been knocked off of the ballot because of an error with his address.  Zecca did start another party, the Utica United Party, prior to the Democratic primary as insurance that he would remain in the race even if he lost the primary.  He did, however, win the Democratic nomination over rival and fellow Common Councilman William Morehouse.
