Tomorrow We Make History
Tomorrow is the night of Gilda Riccardi, an experienced professional, former Prosecutor and mother making he announcement in front of 300 plus Democrats that she will step up to the plate and be a candidate for Ulster County Clerk.
We as Democrats should be proud that someone of Ms.Riccardi's caliber has stepped up to run and take back the office of the Ulster County Clerk for the first time in our County's history.
Ms. Riccardi was well received at the Independence fundraiser last week, I have heard from both Democrats and Republicans that Gilda was very impressive and said no doubt that her opponent looked nervous.
While I have a commitment in NYC that will prevent me from attending my party's convention, I will be there in spirit, and thanks to Ms.Riccardi, I am once again proud to be an Ulster County Democrat!
Of course as talked about previously, we will be nominating a candidate for Ulster County Clerk, I STRONGLY SUPPORT Jonathan Katz, to be our party's nominee and am happy that he has already received the support of the Working Families Party, could another third party endorsement follow for Justice Katz?!?!
There should not be much surprises in the county leg races, hopefully by the end of tomorrow night, I will be able to call and congratulate my friend, County Legislator elect Terry Bernardo. The other race to watch is to see if Tracy Bartels makes a come back and does Noonan get the Dem line? District 8 could prove interesting.
