continued Since 1996, Robb has been a member of the Clay Democratic Committee and co-chaired the Committee for Legislative Action. Last year Robb became vice chairman of the county Democratic committee under English.
“Gary is always ready to help and has always gone the extra mile to get our Democratic candidates elected,” English said.
At the June 13 awards dinner, Roseamelia was impressed by the party’s diversity.
“The County Dems are such a fantastic group,” the Salina chairwoman said. “There’s so much diversity in terms of race and class and especially age, which I find unusual in organizations these days.”
Roseamelia has high hopes for county legislative candidate Carol Sinesi, a social worker who was designated by the town Democrats last month to run in the Fourth District against two-term Republican incumbent Judy Tassone.
In 2011, voters returned Tassone to office after her second hotly contested race against former county legislator David Stott, who decided against running again this year.
