SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - Former Syracuse mayor Stephanie Miner has chosen the Republican mayor of a suburban New York City village as a running mate in her independent campaign for governor.

The registered Democrat announced Monday that village of Pelham Mayor Michael Volpe is joining her ticket on the Serve America Movement line. Miner launched her campaign last week.

Volpe is a two-term mayor of Pelham, a Westchester County village of around 12,000. A labor lawyer for a private firm, he previously served as deputy mayor and was a member of the Pelham Town Council.

Major party candidates seeking to keep Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo from winning a third term include actress and activist Cynthia Nixon, a Democrat, and Republican Marc Molinaro, the Dutchess County executive.
