A note from our Chair:
Political Lawn Signs can be put up September 19!
Campaign signs will be arriving soon, but please note that City of Oneida law prohibits political signs from being displayed more than 45 days prior to an election and must be removed within 15 days after the election. Signs may be placed on your lawn (3 feet behind the sidewalk) beginning September 19th and should be removed by November 18th.
I will have signs available for the local candidates and volunteers will be distributing them. Contact me if you would like a sign!

Special Election 2020 -
Oneida Common Council Ward 4
George Lighthall (D) will be running in the special election for 4th Ward Oneida Common Councillor. There will be a special election for this seat because last year's only candidate, Republican Gary Reisman, moved out of the ward before the election and therefore was not able to take the position, leaving a vacancy. 2020's new Mayor, Helen Acker, made an appointment to fill the vacancy, Republican Michelle Kinville. Because the appointment was made at the start of the two-year term, there will be a special election in November 2020 for the remainder of the two-year term.
All state and local candidates in New York had to file their July periodic financial disclosure report by July 15, listing who donated to their campaign, and what they spent campaign funds on. All candidates registered with the NYS Board of Elections are required to file, even if they are not running for office this year.
You can look up New York candidates' financial disclosure reports on the NYS Board of Elections website here.
