The following announcement is not political in nature but involves a person who has long been supportive and instrumental in democratic politics here in Warren County. Former Thurman Democratic Chair, Andy Knoll, was diagnosed with brain cancer in January and has been unable to work and has faced increased medical expenses as he fights this devastating illness. A group of individuals have organized a benefit on his behalf. This benefit is called a “Life is a Beach” Benefit Party that will be held on May 1, 2014 at the Ski Bowl Park in North Creek from 4-8p.m.

Warren County Democratic Committee Announces Endorsement of Aaron Woolf For Congress and Elizabeth Donahue for Glens Falls City Judge

 After its Wednesday, March 5th meeting, Warren County Democratic Chair Lynne Boecher released the following statement:

"The Warren County Democratic Committee announces their  endorsement of independent businessman Aaron Woolf of Essex County for the 21st Congressional seat being vacated by fellow democrat Bill Owens.

"Mr. Woolf, an award winning documentary filmmaker and small business owner, brings a refreshing new voice to the Congressional dialogue. He articulates a faith in the independent spirit of the North Country and proposes capable solutions to the quagmire of ideas that have plagued the political arena.
Aaron Woolf represents the integrity, commitment and drive that distinguishes this district and will represent all voters well in Congress.

"In addition, the full county democratic committee endorsed unanimously Glens Falls attorney Elizabeth A.  Donohue for Glens Falls City Judge, replacing the retiring Judge Richard Tarantino.

"Ms. Donahue, a practicing attorney in Glens Falls for over thirty years, was  also endorsed by the full Glens Falls Democratic Committee and if elected will be the first female judge in Warren County, making history. Ms. Donahue has represented litigants in both civil and criminal proceedings and has served as a special prosecutor and is also on the Warren and Washington County Law Guardian panels. She is a past President of the Warren County Bar Association.

"Lynne Boecher, Warren County Democratic Chair"
