Yorktown GOP seeks qualified candidates to run for local office

YORKTOWN, NY – The 2016 elections were incredibly successful for the Yorktown Republican Party. Not only did President Trump win the Northern Westchester stronghold but State Senator Terrence Murphy and Assemblyman Kevin Byrne also sailed to victory. In 2017, the Party is now focused on capitalizing on these historic wins.

“Over the past several years the Yorktown Republican Party has been incredibly successful in recruiting candidates and talking about the issues that matter most to the residents of our town,” said Chairman Matt Slater. “We are eager to put a strong ticket back on the campaign trail that will talk about the great things our elected officials have accomplished and their vision moving forward.”

The Yorktown Republican Party has continued to grow over the past several years. It currently stands as one of the strongest parties within the Westchester Republican County Committee with all 86 district leader positions currently filled. In addition, seven of Yorktown’s nine elected offices are currently held by Republicans.

“Our goal this November is to protect and grow our pro-business, pro-infrastructure, town board majority. We will also be laser focused on ensuring County Executive Rob Astorino secures another four years in office. It will be another exciting year for the Yorktown Republican Party,” Slater added.

Anyone interested in running for office as a Republican is asked to send a cover letter and resume to chair@yorktowngop.com. Screening interviews will be set up in February with the Party’s executive committee with endorsement interviews to follow with the entire committee.
