The Daily News – Former Darien judge throws her hat into run for NY-27


ALBION — Meeting with members of the Orleans County Conservative Party, Beth Parlato is making the rounds to let people know she intends to run in the primary for the 27th Congressional district.

As a political outsider, Parlato said she wants to let people know what she’s all about. She said she decided to run because the district needs a new voice in Congress, and while she isn’t a career politician she has worked as an attorney for 28 years in Williamsville and served as Darien Town Judge for 12 years.

“I’m very involved with conservative activism,” Parlato said. “When Collins was first indicted, I was approached to run. At first I wasn’t sure, but after giving it serious consideration, I decided to.”

Part of the reason she said she decided to run was of the 435 members of the House of Representatives, only 102 are women and out of them there are only 13 Republican women. What really was the catalyst for her decision, however, was the Reproductive Health Act and Parlato said there is a big push to get qualified GOP women in Congress and Republican women voices heard.

Parlato said she doesn’t believe Collins will be running for NY-27 again due to the federal government dropping three indictments to speed along his trial, which will be in February — right in the middle of campaign season.

Parlato can be found online at, as well as Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and YouTube.
