“SOMERS, N.Y. – Jim Chisholm, chairman of the Somers Republican Committee, is running for Westchester County clerk, he confirmed to Yorktown News. He is expected to formally announce his candidacy tomorrow morning.
Chisholm, a 20-year Somers resident, has also served as president of the Somers Chamber of Commerce and president of the Somers Lions Club. Four years ago, he managed former Somers town supervisor Mary Beth Murphy’s campaign for Westchester County clerk.
Chisholm’s opponent will likely be Democrat Tim Idoni, who has served as county clerk since 2006. Before that, he served as mayor of New Rochelle for 14 years. Idoni told Yorktown News that he is seeking a fourth term, though he has not made a formal announcement.”
