4/17/17 Today another Broome County Republican official has been arrested for misconduct while in office. This comes on the heels of the following events. The Town of Union Supervisor Rose Sotak was just indicted by a grand jury on a felony charge of abusing her authority and the Town of Union Board is currently looking into removing her from office. And now, a special prosecutor has charged former Town of Conklin Supervisor and former Broome County Executive Debbie Preston with three misdemeanor charges of official misconduct dating back to 2005. According to Democratic Chair Tim Grippen, "This is a troubling trend that should concern all Broome County residents. We hope that current Broome County District Attorney Steve Cornwell will continue to prosecute public corruption without fear or favor." Jason Garnar (D) said, "Bottom Line: No politician is above the law."
