In Our Opinion: Magee has a tough path to re-election

(Continued)

But it might well be too soon to start writing Magee’s political obituary. He is a fixture at virtually any chicken dinner event, where he often reads Assembly proclamations to award recipients. He has been a diligent defender and advocate for local interests within the Assembly.

The Otsego County Democratic Committee is sticking with him, and Magee contends that the Madison endorsement came from “a very small group of individuals” within the county.

“I have represented this district well, and I will continue to do so,” Magee said last week.

Still, even if he defeats Hennessy in the primary, Magee will face a Republican — Brookfield Town Supervisor John Salka has announced his candidacy — in November.

What is apparent is that Bill Magee will have to run much harder than usual this year if he expect to be re-elected.
