New Political Party Titled “Local 607” Launched For Cortland, Tompkins and Broome County Voters


A new political party has been formed for registered voters in Cortland, Tompkins, and Broome Counties. The new party, called Local 607, is a new independent party created by Mike Sigler, a Republican candidate for the 52nd New York State Senate District. Sigler faces Democratic incumbent Lea Webb this November.

Almost 5,000 signatures were collected by Sigler and his team throughout the 52nd Senate District in order to have a spot for the Local 607 party on this November’s Ballot. The Local 607 petition signatures were filed with the New York State Board of Elections in Albany earlier this month with the time period for any objections already passed.

“The Local 607 Party isn’t about me or any other candidate. It’s about the people of our communities, who’ve been suffering from skyrocketing prices, job losses, population outflow, and dangerous laws like Bail Reform that make our streets less safe,” said Mike Sigler. “I’m asking every resident who’s as sick and tired of it as I am – whether you’re an Independent, Democrat or Republican – to join with me and vote ‘Local 607’ in November.”

New York State Election Laws require over 3,000 signatures to allow an independent ballot line. The signatures must be taken within 6 weeks, but also from voters within the given district and the voter must have not previously signed a petition for any candidate for the same office within the year.
