Surprise Surprise, Michael Hein is going to run for County Executive and will announce his candidacy tomorrow at 1pm. Michael Hein is a great guy and has proven leadership in the county after presenting two fiscally sound budgets and bringing accountability to our government. Hein will likely face some opposition from his fellow Democrats. Make no mistake about it, the D.A.'s race will seem like child's play compared to this race, which essentially is the most powerful position in Ulster County.
I will have more on this race tomorrow, it is my sincere hope that the Democratic party has time to heal and work together so that we do not have a repeat of November 2007. I'm not committing to any candidate this early but I do wish Mr. Hein a lot of luck, he is a worthy contender.
