Candidates for 2017 Elections are wanted

We are always looking for interested, involved, capable and caring citizens who want to make Oswego County a better place to live.

Now is the time to consider being a candidate in the 2017 elections. The process of running for office starts long before the election. Starting early allows time for planning and gathering a team and resources. Petitions are circulated in June to get a spot on the ballot in November.

We are looking for qualified candidates. If you are interested in running for an office, contact us for information. We will help you learn what you need to do to run a successful campaign and assist you throughout the process.

Most local offices are elected in the odd years. Local offices include:

Town Supervisors
Town Board Members
Town Clerks
Town Highway Superintendents
City Aldermen
County Legislators

in 20017 County Treasurer is also open.

State and Federal positions are usually in the even years.
