County Legislator Welch announces reelection campaign
UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - County Legislator Howard Welch has announced that he is seeking reelection and has been endorsed by the Republican Party, according to his campaign.
Welch is the legislator for the 22nd District, based in Utica.
His campaign says that Welch has been an outspoken advocate of the consolidation of Utica joining Oneida County's 911 center.
Welch said, "This consolidation will improve public safety as the Utica police officers can focus more on the streets. Furthermore Utica taxpayers should save approximately one million dollars in their City budget."
