Common Council candidate John K. Ciccotti said he’s not sure how a charge of violating a court order will impact his campaign.

Ciccotti, 52, of 126 Third St., said today that he will take a few days to reflect on his situation before deciding how to proceed with his interest in the First Ward council seat.

"My name’s on the ballot no matter what," said Ciccotti regarding a Republican primary set for Tuesday, Sept. 10.

He will have a primary against Lori A. Trifeletti for the party line come Election Day on
Nov. 5.

Ciccotti is the only Independence candidate in the race that also includes Democrat Brett M. Johnson.

It might not be too late to withdraw from the general election ballot on Nov. 5, noted Rose Marie Grimaldi, Republican commissioner for the county’s Board of Elections. She said a candidate that wanted to withdraw from the general election at this point in the year could contact her office to discuss the possibility.

Ciccotti has been charged with violating a court order by telephoning his ex-girlfriend. Police said he telephoned and tried to start a conversation with the 55-year-old woman at 6:52 p.m. Aug. 23, despite being court-ordered to leave her alone. Ciccotti is charged with one count of
secof second-degree contempt, a misdemeanor, for violating the order of protection, police said. He posted $300 bail Monday and the case was adjourned to Sept. 16.

"It doesn’t affect me and how I believe in the city," said Ciccotti today. "Just because this happened to me in my personal life, doesn’t mean I don’t love my city."

Ciccotti, who served as First Ward councilor representing part of east Rome for a decade ending in 2001, said today: "I have a 10-step program to enhance this city. This put a little damper on it."

Whether he will actively campaign is something he will decide later this week, he said. At that point, he will make a statement.

It was a run-in with the law that saw Ciccotti ushered out of office in 2001. He was released from federal prison in February 2004 after being sentenced to 13 months behind bars on a drug trafficking charge.

Since being out of office, he has had more legal problems.

In April 2004, he was ordered back to federal prison for three months for failing to report for drug testing. In May 2005 he was sentenced to three years probation and 60 days domicile restriction on a count of endangering the welfare of a child. An order of protection was also issued against him.

In March 2006, he was ordered to pay a $100 fine on a charge of trespass, reduced from petty larceny.

New York State election law allows a convicted felon to run for office on three conditions: that the candidate is at least 18 years old, is a citizen, and is a resident of the district in which the office is being sought.

Maybe his dopey goofy friends don't care but NOT ALL of ward one is Park Drive Manor or Little Puerto Rico. Remember this is Republicans voting they favor a more balanced candidate. Not one that has constant brushes with the law.

This guy is a disease. No f-ing way should a convicted felon be sitting on any city's common council. I can see a one-time charge of harassment but drug dealing? He's had too many brushes with the law. Anyone but this clown...

Can't believe the idiots who back him up. These are not mistakes he made they are adult decisions he choose to make and BAD decisions at that time after time again.

I believe Lori is the best choice and the only one without a criminal record. This goof will get 2 votes,his and his moms. He should not be allowed to even run. You are a criminal and have a long history of it and a big mouth to boot. I wish I lived in his ward I'd be sure to stand against this.Isn't a lady running too,I am sure she will win.
