News10NBC has learned that Livingston County Undersheriff Jim Szczesniak has been selected by the Conservative Party as its candidate for Livingston County Sheriff.
Livingston County Conservative Party Chair Jason McGuire said, "Choosing Mr. Szczesniak was the easy part. The members of our committee certainly shifted toward Jim since our earlier vetting process. In fact, last night's Executive Committee vote was unanimous. The hard part was determining how best to correct a botched primary election. None of the choices we were confronted with were ideal. We ultimately decided that if we were to seek another primary that it would cost the taxpayers - that are already overtaxed in this state - far too much, and the end result of that race may have been no different than this one."
Szczesniak will face Republican Tom Dougherty on the ballot in November. Dougherty is currently employed as an investigator in the Livingston County Sheriff's Office.
