NY21 Burke gets a break, Doheny films as Stefanik campaigns in Watertown


While Stephen W. Burke, one of the Democrats in the 21st Congressional District race, sat in Albany waiting for the state Supreme Court to decide his political fate, Republican candidate Matthew A. Doheny, who will face Elise M. Stefanik in a June primary, was filming material for a campaign ad in downtown Watertown.

Mr. Burke had more than 170 signatures struck from his ballot petitions Monday, potentially disqualifying him from the race and clearing a path for Aaron G. Woolf to move straight to the general election. He was granted a temporary reprieve Wednesday morning after the Supreme Court told him it could not reach a decision until the Commissioners of the Board of Elections met to certify petitions.

In the midst of a slew of campaign visits by Ms. Stefanik on his home turf, Mr. Doheny, a Watertown resident, was seen in front of the Paddock Arcade during a shoot for a campaign ad.

The shoot was being coordinated by Bob Honold, a Washington, D.C.-based political and communications strategist originally from Syracuse.

Jefferson County Legislator Jeremiah J. Maxon, R-Adams, was filmed talking with Mr. Doheny as the two walked down Washington Street toward Public Square.

Ms. Stefanik made several campaign stops in Watertown yesterday, including at the Emma Flower Taylor fire station.
