In the race for Oneida County clerk, former Oneida County Legislator Dave Gordon has announced he will challenge incumbent Sandra DePerno.

Gordon, a Republican, made the announcement Monday outside the Department of Motor Vehicles at Union Station in Utica. His platform is “Fix the DMV.”

“One of my initiatives is to locate another DMV office at the old Gander Mountain, which will be the new New Hartford town offices, and people are very receptive to having the services brought to their neighborhood, to the suburbs, where people want to have these services,” Gordon said. “They find it very difficult to park at the train station, they find it very difficult to come in and wait in line. It consumes their days off, it consumes their lunch hours. It consumes a lot of time because it's just not a good flow here at the DMV.”

Gordon will challenge current Oneida County Clerk Sandra DePerno, a Democrat, who is running for her fourth term. She says she hopes voters understand the changes she has implemented over the years, including digitizing records.

“The Clerk’s Office also includes passports and naturalization, we do our veteran’s card there,” DePerno said. “I changed the hours down to the DMV to Tuesdays and Thursdays, we are open ten to six. I initiated the 321 Main Street campaign to educate our voters that unless you come into the office, the state keeps most of the money.”

DePerno says the DMV has hired and is currently in the process of training new employees.
