  1. This press release from the Philipstown GOP lists Richard Shea’s party affiliations incorrectly. In the November 2009 election, Richard Shea was endorsed by the Democratic Party, the Conservative Party and the Independence Party. He was not affiliated with the WF party.

    A copy of the sample ballot for that election is available online.
