Heads To Full Board

Jennifer Mickle

COOPERSTOWN – In a party-line vote, the county board’s Administration Committee a few minutes ago voted, 3-1, to send Jennifer Mickle’s name Dec. 2 to the full board, which will consider whether to appoint her to succeed state Sen.-elect Peter Oberacker, R-Schenevus, in Cooperstown.

County Rep. Clark Oliver, the Democratic county chairman, said “I’m disappointed this process was so rushed.”  The Democratic County Committee planned to meet tonight to designate a Democratic nominee.

But county board Chair David Bliss, R-Cooperstown/Town of Middlefield, said everyone knew nine months ago, when Oberacker announced he would run to succeed retiring state Sen. Jim Seward, R-Milford, that there might be a vacancy.
