Saratoga County Republican Chairman John “Jasper” Nolan said earlier this week that Queensbury Supervisor Dan Stec was poised to receive the Saratoga County Republican Committee endorsement.

“I, along with some of the other members, have decided to support Dan Stec, but we’ve asked him to come down so we can make it an official endorsement,” Nolan told The Post-Star on Tuesday.

And it turns out he was right.

Stec made the drive south on Saturday, and the committee officially endorsed his candidacy for the Assembly seat that will be open because Assemblywoman Teresa Sayward, R-Willsboro, is retiring.

“Dan is the candidate that has earned the right to be the candidate, “ Corinth Supervisor Richard Lucia, who nominated Stec for the endorsement, said in a press release.

In other Assembly race news: For those who pay attention to net campaigning, Stec apparently is the first candidate in the race to have a campaign e-mail account:

Stec is one of four candidates seeking the Republican nomination in the Assembly race.

The other candidates are Doug Hoffman, an accountant from Lake Placid; former Glens Falls Mayor Robert Regan; and Thurman Supervisor Evelyn Wood.

Stec already has the Independence nomination.

On the Democratic side, Jay Supervisor Randy Douglas has said he is considering the race.
