SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- The baton has been passed to a new generation of a long time political family in Syracuse. Joseph Carni has announced he'll seek the republican nomination for Syracuse Common Council in the First District.
One relative, Walter Ludovico was a councilor for 28 years. The candidate's father, Edward Carni, now a State Supreme Court Justice, served for six years as a common councilor.
Carni is one of several new faces emerging in the GOP, which no longer holds any of the key elective posts in the city.
"Common sense recognizes that one-party government is not an ideal situation. Equal representation demands diversity, opposing points of view, and vigorous debate. One party government serves no one’s best interests," said Joseph Carni, Common Council Candidate.
Carni could potentially face a GOP primary for the council nomination.
Republican David Gay said he expects to announce his candidacy for the Fist District seat next week.
