GOP elected official endorses Democratic Rep. Owens

Our friends at WNBZ radio have this report up on their web site:

A local Republican is publicly endorsing Democratic Congressman Bill Owens’s reelection bid, even with two fellow Republicans vying for the seat.

Moriah Supervisor Tom Scozzafava told WNBZ Wednesday he is impressed with Owens’s performance since he was elected to the seat in a special election last year.

“He does the job. And not only does he do the job, but it’s direct personal contact and I appreciate that,” he said. “It’s not a reflection on the other two candidates, but I’m supporting Bill Owens.”

The often vocal Republican lauded Owens’s handling of several local issues including the Lake Champlain Bridge project and the potential closure of the Moriah Shock incarceration facility.
