Syracuse, NY - Onondaga County Executive Joanie Mahoney today received the endorsement of the New York State Independence Party, the state’s third largest political party.

“Thank you to the New York State Independence Party for supporting my campaign,” said Onondaga County Executive Joanie Mahoney. “As the third largest party in our state, the Independence Party represents a diverse mix of independent minded people who share a common goal of transforming government for the better.”

“Joanie Mahoney is exactly the type of leader we should be electing across our state,” said NYS Independence Chairman Frank MacKay. “Since Joanie took office in 2008, property taxes are down and the size of Onondaga County Government is smaller. She has focused on making government more efficient and more responsive to taxpayers. The County Executive has also focused on diversifying county government and has increased opportunities for all of the people in her community. Politicians like Joanie Mahoney don’t come along very often, but when they do we are happy to support them.”

The New York State Independence Party was founded in 1991 and identifies itself as a centrist and pragmatic political party. The Independence Party promotes the position that candidates and elected officials should be free to tell the voters what their views are, without dictates from political party bosses, special interest groups and restrictive party platforms. There are more than 14,000 Onondaga County voters registered in the Independence Party.

Mahoney, of Dewitt, is currently seeking re-election to the post of County Executive. In addition to appearing on the Independence Party line, Mahoney also has been endorsed by the Onondaga County Republican Party.
