Republicans nominate incumbents in Manlius

Theobald, Holmquist, O’Leary and team seeking re-election

— At the May 9 meeting of the town of Manlius Republican Committee, the incumbent slate of elected officials were all chosen to represent the Republican Party on the ballot in November.

Town Supervisor Ed Theobald will be seeking his third two year term in office after serving six years as a village Trustee in Minoa. “I am very proud of the team we have here in town government,” said Theobald. “Our elected officials all work very hard to represent the taxpayers of our town with efficient and cost-effective services. And, our staff at Town Hall is second to none in their commitment to serving the taxpayers of our great town. It is a pleasure and honor to work alongside these individuals.”

Onondaga County Legislator Kevin Holmquist has recently completed his 22 year representing the citizens of the Town of Manlius. First elected as a Manlius village trustee at age 24, he then served on the Manlius Town Board before being appointed to the County Legislature in June of 2005.

“Serving the citizens of Manlius has been a dream come true for me,” said Holmquist who grew up in Manlius and graduated from F-M High School. Kevin is known as a conservative fiscal watch dog on the County Legislature. “The County Legislature has done a tremendous job of cutting costs and streamlining government services, but there is still much work to be done. I’m looking forward to the opportunity to continue that record for our taxpayers.”

Town Judge Bob O’Leary served as Fayetteville Village Justice from 1992 until his appointment as Manlius Town Judge in 2001. He has served in that position since and is seeking re-election this year. “I am proud of my record as Judge for the past 21 years,” said O’Leary. “I strive to always deliver firm, but fair justice to reflect the values of our community while treating everyone that appears before me in court with courtesy and respect. If re-elected, I look to continue that record that the taxpayers of our great town have come to expect.”
