PORT HENRY -- U.S. Rep. Bill Owens, D-Plattsburgh, will march with two well-known area Republicans in the Port Henry Labor Day Parade on Sunday, his campaign announced.
State Assemblywoman Teresa Sayward, R-Willsboro, and Moriah Supervisor Tom Scozzafava, a Republican, will march with Owens in the parade that begins at 1 p.m. Sunday at Broad Street.
“Bill is devoted to the North County. ... I think he’s done a really terrific job in Washington,” Sayward said. “And the thing that has impressed me the most is the way that he and Congressman Gibson have worked together in a nonpartisan way.”
Owens is running for re-election against Republican Matt Doheny and Green Party candidate Donald Hassig in the new 21st Congressional District, which includes Warren, Washington and northern Saratoga counties.
Doheny also plans to march in the parade on Sunday, said Jude Seymour, the candidate’s spokesman.
Sayward, who is retiring at the end of the year and is not seeking re-election, has endorsed Republican Dan Stec in the race for the seat that will be open in the new 114th Assembly District.
Stec, the Queensbury supervisor, is running against Democrat Dennis Tarantino, a lawyer from Queensbury.
Scozzafava also has endorsed Stec.
