Utica, NY (WIBX) - The Mohawk Valley Chamber of Commerce Board is unveiling its endorsement of officials running for office in this year's election. The Chamber is backing Anthony Picente for Oneida County Executive, Bob Cardillo for Utica Mayor, and Bill Morehouse for Utica Common Council President. The Chamber refrained from making an endorsement for the City of Rome Mayor. Officials say board of directors decided by vote on their selection, following recommendations by the Chamber's Government Affairs and Economic Development Council.

Chamber officials say each candidate participating in this year's election was invited to take part in the 30 minute screening process. Voters will get to make their selection on election day--Tuesday, November 8th.
