The full Saratoga County Republican Committee should be included in the process of selecting a preferred candidate to challenge U.S. Rep. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-Greenport, in November, three of the four Republican candidates said Wednesday.Richard Wager, Michael Rocque and John Wallace all said a vote of the full county committee would be more representative than leaving the decision up to a much smaller "executive committee" of county party leaders, as is currently the plan."All I'm asking for is a level playing field," said Wager, from Millbrook in Dutchess County."A lot of it goes back to the open election process," said Michael Rocque, of Clifton Park.

Wager, a former aide to New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, and Rocque, a retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel, have both written letters to Saratoga County Republican Chairman John "Jasper" Nolan calling for a vote of the full county committee, as is the policy in Warren and Washington counties.

John Wallace, of Chatham in Columbia County, said Wednesday he has not written a letter, but he supports the request of the other two candidates."I'm for open and verifiable elections," said Wallace, a real estate broker and retired State Trooper.Nolan said it would be impractical to organize a vote of the entire county committee within a short time frame because of the large number of people who serve on it.

Nolan is so far off the deep end he doesn't know which end is up.

Short of time? It's an arbitrary schedule set by you!

We should give the nomination to the first person who promises to remove Nolan and the other corrupt chairmen.

How did Jasper get his powerful position? Is he elected? Something must be done. His patronage is everywhere in the County government, We, the taxpayers are paying heavily and unfairness is rampant.Guess who replaced Gail Gavin in the Courts (jury assignment). Her daughter stepped right into the position. Nepotism???
