It’s been a while since a local pol campaigned for office wearing a bow tie.
And just as long since a bow tie appeared as a candidate’s official logo.
Think bow tie-clad James W. Pitts back in 1997, when the then-Common Council president ran for mayor against incumbent Anthony M. Masiello and former Mayor James D. Griffin. He featured his trademark bow tie as his logo, too.
Now Democratic county clerk candidate Steve Cichon is incorporating neckwear into his campaign logo as he runs against Mickey Kearns on the GOP line. It makes sense for Cichon, whose ubiquitous bow tie has become a familiar sight on the campaign trail.
