Next County Exec, Christopher St. Lawrence?

When one door closes another opens. Although in this case the door is still closed and there’s a No Vacancy sign hanging above it. For now.

New York’s CityHallNews.com says Ramapo Town Supervisor Christopher St. Lawrence would consider running for Rockland County Executive should the current County Executive, Scott Vanderhoef, win the race to become Rockland’s NYS Senator. That also assumes Vanderhoef will first win the Republican nomination to replace the retiring Senator Thomas Morahan.

St. Lawrence was hoping to be the Democratic candidate for Lieutenant Governor before the party chose Rochester’s Mayor Robert J. Duffy. CityHallNews writes

After saying he would be taking stock of all his political options, it was pointed out to St. Lawrence that a county executive run could be a possibility. In response, St. Lawrence flashed a wily smile, and said, ‘€œexactly, exactly.’€

As for his platform in that race if he runs, St. Lawrence made clear that economics and job creation would be central. Ramapo, he said, had low tax and high occupancy rates, and said, ‘€œwe need to make that work in the county.’€
