tells linkinglewiscounty.com that she will not be seeking re-election to the
post this year. Ms. Hoskins will instead retire following the completion of her
term on December 31, telling us she is looking forward to spending time with
her family and travelling.
All four countywide elected positions (County Clerk, District Attorney, Sheriff
and Treasurer) will be on the ballot this year.
Lewis County Treasurer Patricia O'Brien announced in August that she would
be retiring at the end of her term in 2019. Denise Yost, a senior account clerk
in the Treasurer's office, announced in November that she intended to run for
the position of Treasurer.
This means that at least two of the four countywide elected positions will have
a new face in the office in 2020.
Lewis County District Attorney Leanne Moser and Lewis County Sheriff
Micheal Carpinelli have not made official announcements yet on whether they
will seek re-election in 2019.
All ten Lewis County Legislator positions will be on the ballot in 2019 as well.
The election cycle is getting off to an early start this year, with the Primary
Election date in New York State moving up to the fourth Tuesday in June.
Previously, the primaries were held on the second Tuesday in September.
With an earlier Primary Election, candidates will need to begin the process of
seeking office much earlier than in past years. Candidates will begin the
petition process on February 26.
All petitions for the major party candidates must be filed with the Lewis County
Board of Elections between April 1 and April 4, with a Primary Election on June
25 if needed. The General Election will take place on November 5.
Anyone interested in obtaining petitions for any elected office in the 2019
General Election can stop by the Lewis County Board of Elections, located in
the Lowville Commons building at 7550 S. State Street. You can also call the
Board of Elections at 315-376-5329 with any questions on the process.
The following is a list of all the offices to be filled throughout the county in the
2019 General Election, including at the town and village level:
