MILFORD – The Otsego County Republican Committee over the weekend unanimously endorsed Allen Ruffles, Democratic treasurer Dan Crowell’s deputy, for county treasurer.
“We are very pleased to have a candidate of this caliber,” said GOP County Chair Vince Casale. “Allen’s experience is second to none. He will be a great candidate and certainly a tremendous asset to our county as our treasurer.”
The endorsement, made at a Saturday morning meeting at The Elm Inn, means Ruffles’ name will appear on the Republican ballot line in November.
