SENNETT FOR PARTY CHAIRMAN
It's official, Jonathan Sennett announced that he will be running for Chairman of the Ulster County Democratic party!! The announcement came tonight at the Ulster County Democratic executive committee meeting.
John Parete has had a good run and done a lot for our party but it's time for him to retire and move on. I feel that Mr. Parete did not do as much as he could in last years election for our party's nominee and it's hard to forget and move past.
In the end, Sennett lost by less than four thousand votes and despite the way things happened, has stayed active in the County committee and has joined his local New Paltz committee and was elected to serve as Vice-Chairman.
We need a leader in our party that will work hard to get Democrats elected and unite our party, so that the mistakes of last year are never repeated. During last year's D.A.s race, I had the privilege of working very closely with Jon and his family and consider them part of my own family, and would do anything for them..so this is a little personal for me. However, I firmly believe there is no one that will fight harder for our party and bring us together like Jonathan Sennett and I'm proud to support him as chair of our party.
