“I encourage anyone who may have had contact with or been in close proximity to Brian to take necessary steps to self-isolate and limit any contact with others who may be more vulnerable to COVID-19,” said Barclay.

Chad McEvoy

WESTFORD – Democrat Chad McEvoy this morning announced he will run again in the 101st District against Republican Brian Miller.  This year’s election is Nov. 3.

The 101st is “one of the most gerrymandered in all New York State,” McEvoy said in his announcement.  It winds spaghetti-like from the Utica area to Orange County, north of Newburgh.

When he ran in 2018, one of McEvoy’s main promises was to get the 200-mile “Catskill snake” redrawn in a way that would allow better representation.
