U.C. Races Shaping Up
Last week Susan Zimet joined the race for Ulster County Executive, touting her experience as a County Legislator and a former Town Supervisor. While I support Mike Hein and feel he is head and shoulders above any announced candidate, I like Susan a lot and hope the race is run on the issues and in a fair manner.
Both candidates for Executive have vowed to support the party's nominee and not have a repeat of last years D.A. race. It's good to see both candidates start out in an honorable manner.
For Comptroller, it looks like on the Democratic side David Donaldson and Elliott Auerbach will be the only candidates that will be seeking the nomination.
No Republican candidate has announced yet for Exec or Comptroller.
NY Assembly's 101 district has one announced Republican candidate, Robin Yess, has ditched her candidacy for Exec and opted to run against Kevin Cahill. Mike Stock is also looking at a possible run.
Assemblyman Kevin Cahill is in a strong position for reelection, his recent appointment to the state's Energy committee will likely help boost his fundraising capabilities. His top notch constituent service and personality makes the guy virtually unbeatable.
