Failed to file[edit]

  • Scott Noren, oral and maxillofacial surgeon[4][5]

Declined[edit]

The Clinton-Kennedy-Cuomo Democratic Alliance has "endorsed the Democratic candidate", and has repeatedly indicated no known other candidates in their party with national experience. Julie Ann Racino, Senior Executive Services (SES), 1994 National Democratic Party, 2018 in Governor Clinton's Commissioner Offices in Arkansas at the time of his nomination for US President, consulting on behalf of the US Nation's Science Centers. For the public, Julie Ann Racino was concerned about vipering of Caroline Kennedy (yes, every election) with Kirsten Gillibrand's group implicated. When Clinton was elected US President, nominated by New York Governor's Mario Cuomo, Andrew Cuomo was appointed US HUD Secretary, and reportedly hired Kirsten Gillibrand. Kirsten Gillibrand was noted as his supporter in New York at the 2015 funeral service of Mario Cuomo of New York. Julie Ann Racino met First Lady Matilda Cuomo and NYS Governor Mario Cuomo in 1983, and was involved in establishing NYS Executive Offices prior to his administration. The election relevance is critical in 2018 since NYS Legislative Budget and Finance is at risk, and parties involved legislatively are not responding at professional avenues.
