It's Official Kathy Mihm Is In

Kathleen Carey Mihm, Former 21 year Deputy Commissioner of the Ulster County Board of Elections is seeking the position of Commissioner of Elections at the, Sunday, September 28th, meeting of the Ulster County Democratic Committee. The meeting convenes at 3:00PM at the Hillside, Manor in Kingston.

"Voting is one of the most important rights we have as American citizens.
Accessibility to polling places, adherence to election law and accurate
ballot tabulation are of the highest concern to me," said Mihm.

The lifelong Democrat has served as Deputy Elections Commissioner for over 21 years under former Ulster County Democratic Election's Commissioner Harry Castiglione. She is presently the Clerk of the Ulster County Legislature.

During Mihm's tenure as deputy commissioner, she worked to establish an open
door policy and worked closely with the voting public, election inspectors, town clerks and town party chairs to ensure smooth operations during elections. "Kathy Mihm will bring tremendous integrity and attention to detail to this position," said Castiglione.

Present Election Commissioner, John R. Parete, who is retiring upon the completion of his term, stated “Kathy knows the day to day operation of the Board of Elections. The Democratic Party and the voting public would be well served with Mihm as Commissioner of Elections. She has my full support.”

Mrs. Mihm, an
Ulster County native, the Mother of two grown children Marty and Katie would be the first female election's commissioner in Ulster County. "I am committed to staying up-to-date on changing voting technology and ways of distributing election results," said Mihm.

She has all the qualifications for the job. Is it true that John Parete will not seek the UC chair?
