Wylie To Seek Reelection
The District Attorney that led prosecutions in the wake of the escape of David Sweat and Richard Matt from the Clinton Correctional facility last summer plans to run for re-election.
Clinton County District Attorney Andrew Wylie plans to seek a fourth term.
The Plattsburgh Press Republican reports that Wylie felt this was a critical time to announce because there was speculation whether he would seek a judgeship. That question spiked this week when Judge Kevin Ryan announced his retirement.
Wylie was first elected in 2005.
