Sloatsburg Mayor Carl Wright will have a bit of competition for his office this year, at least in the Sept. 9 Republican primary. The Democrat Wright got the okay of the Republicans to enter a primary against political newcomer Marino Fontana, a registered Republican.
The idea is for Wright to get hold of the Republican ballot line â€” he had it in 2004 and ran with GOP support in 2000 as well â€” so villagers can have the uncontested general election that they’d grown accustomed to.
As mayor, Wright has had seven terms since 1975.
Sooooo, are you citizens out there happy to do away with the two-party system?
Do you subscribe to Wright’s thinking that uncontested tickets show folks of all political stripes working together for the good of all?
