North Country Congresswoman Elise Stefanik is endorsing Gary Pasqua for St. Lawrence County district attorney.
Pasqua is running as a Republican against Democrat James Monroe.
“The people of St. Lawrence County have an opportunity to make a change in the right direction. Gary Pasqua has a long track record of honorably serving the needs of the North Country. His temperament and extensive legal experience uniquely qualify him to serve as Saint Lawrence’s new District Attorney. I am proud to endorse Gary Pasqua, and look forward to working alongside him in serving Saint Lawrence County and all the people of the North Country,” Stefanik, a Republican, said in a prepared statement.
“I am honored to have Congresswoman Stefanik’s endorsement. She has worked tirelessly to better the lives of the people of St. Lawrence County since being elected into office. I intend to do the same if the people of St. Lawrence County allow me the honor of being their next District Attorney,” Pasqua wrote in an email.
Stefanik and Pasqua will both attend the St. Lawrence County Republican Committee’s Fall Meet and Greet Wednesday, Oct. 18 at the Silas Wainwright VFW Post 6338, 100 West Main St., Gouverneur. The event begins at 6 p.m.
