It has just been announced the NYS Senator Owen Johnson has just announced his retirement and Conservative Society for Action chairman Steve Flanagan is not happy about the timing.
On his facebook page, Flanagan posted:
OWEN JOHNSON JUST ANNOUNCED HE’S RETIRING! Note that this announcement was kept secret until the day after nominating petitions were delivered. The timing of this announcement is concerning. More on this later.
Flanagan added a link to an LIPolitics.com article CSA’s Stephen Flanagan to Challenge NYS Senator Owen Johnson where we reported the CSA leader’s interest in running if Johnson decided not to seek re-election.
