MALTA: GOP picks slate

Thomas said she has several issues that are very important to her. Acknowledging the strong volunteer network that makes up Malta's various committees and programs, Thomas said she would like to review the volunteer programs and move forward.

"I'd like to promote volunteerism and citizen participation," she said. Thomas noted that she would also like to join the existing board in its efforts to assist the local emergency services agencies within the town. Thomas believes that the town should be more active in recruiting new members for the three agencies within town.

Thomas said that she will be meeting with various homeowners associations, going door-to-door, and engaging in e-mail conversations to meet and discuss issues with the citizens of Malta. She said if elected as councilwoman, those things would continue as a means to provide communication with residents.

In addition to endorsing town council candidates, the Republican Committee also endorsed a number of other candidates.

Current Highway Superintendent Tom Adriance was given the endorsement over his challenger Roger Crandall. The remaining candidates were unopposed and given the endorsement of the Republican Committee for their respective positions: Supervisor Paul Sausville, Town Clerk Flo Sickels, Receiver of Taxes Sylvia Sievers and Town Justice James Nichols.

There has been no announcement from the Malta Democratic Committee regarding endorsement of candidates to oppose the Republican slate of candidates. ""
