LIVINGSTON COUNTY — Marjorie Byrnes’s checkbook just bounced back a bit as the Livingston County Conservative Party Chair returned to her $20,000 in fees he charged her as a political consultant.
Byrnes is currently a candidate for the New York State Assembly 133rd district and running against incumbent Joe Errigo in a Republican Primary.
According to campaign filing records on June 21 she paid Jason McGuire, the Livingston County Conservative Party Chair $20k in political consultant fees prior to receiving the New York State Conservative Party Endorsement. On July 13 Byrnes was voted for unanimously by the New York State Conservative Party State Executive Committee. McGuire is one of over 25 voting members of the committee. The story was first broke by 1180WHAM’s Bob Lonsberry.
