Don McKay Gearing Up For Highway Race?
It appears that Town Recreation and Parks Commissioner, Don Mckay is gearing up to run for Town of Huntington Superintendent of Highways.
According to the New York State Board of Elections website, McKay has opened a “Friends of Don McKay” Campaign account and the position listed is Highway Superintendent. McKay has started a Facebook Page called McKay For Highway. As of October 6th, Councilman Mark Cuthbertson is one of three people who “like” his Facebook page.
Don McKay is a democrat. The present Highway Superintendent, William Naughton is also a democrat who has typically received the democratic nomination in the past as well as a series of cross endorsements. McKay’s involvement suggests a democratic primary is in the making.
After Petrone’s recent attempt failed to make the Highway position an appointed one, there was speculation that Don McKay would primary William Naughton who is up for reelection November 2013.
