Democrats have a good shot to take back the Ulster County legislature this year, we have a lot of great candidates and we have excellent Democratic county legislators running for reelection.
As Democrats we need to focusing on picking up seats, making sure that Republicans in key districts are defeated and getting great candidates in office that share our values and beliefs.
It's bad enough some incumbent legislators have been put in the same districts and are forced into primaries to retain their voice on the legislature. Mike Madsen, David Donaldson, Donald Gregorius, and Roy Hochberg are four superb legislators, unfortunately on January 1st, we will lose two of them no matter what.
It is disturbing to see that some of our other great legislators like Rich Parete and Rob Parete are looking at facing primaries as well. This is counter productive to our goal of winning back the county legislature in November.
I strongly call upon our esteemed Chairman Julian Schreibman to discourage these primaries and to keep a strong focus on winning back the majority in the legislature.
