Matthew Conlon, a Republican whose name appears on the Democratic line of the ballot for the office of County Judge, has distributed a mass mailing that says, Cook “…Placed his own interest ahead of the law when, as recently as July, he violated NYS Public Officers Law, section 3, (which states that a public officer must live in the county where they hold public office) by holding public office (assistant district attorney) in one county (Chemung), while living in another county (Yates).
