Meet Michelle Hinchey: Tues, Sept 13 5:30pm at the Red Hook Rec Park Pavilion Red Hook Dems host a meet and greet. Not a fundraiser, just a chance for everyone to come and meet Michelle and hear about her priorities and ask questions! Find and share this event on Facebook!
Pat Ryan won twice!
Yes! Pat Ryan is in DC as your Congressman, filling Antonio Delgado’s big shoes until Jan 1 when the winner of the November General Election for our NEW Congressional District 18 will take over. To everyone who voted, hosted an event, raised money, door knocked, phone or text banked, talked to a fellow voter, or volunteered — all of it mattered. Thank you for taking the time to help make this win possible for all of us!
From Congressman Pat Ryan: “Choice was on the ballot. Freedom was on the ballot, and tonight choice and freedom won. We voted like our democracy was on the line because it is. We upended everything we thought we knew about politics and did it together. NY-19, it will be my honor to serve you in Congress.”
More work to be done! Next Election November 8
After winning the Aug 23 Democratic party primary, Pat Ryan will face off against New Windsor GOP assemblyman (and Trump supporter) Colin Schmitt for a seat in the new Congressional District 18. Read The Case Against Colin Schmitt here.
Michelle Hinchey is an incumbent State Senator running to represent us in the (newly drawn) State Senate 41st District (still in the area where she lives and grew up). She will face our current GOP State Senator Sue Serino, another Trump follower who’s voted against women’s choice and gun safety.
Sarahana Shrestha is our Democratic candidate for Assembly after winning her June primary (against Kevin Cahill).
Jillian Hanlon is our Democratic candidate for Dutchess County Sheriff who faces an extremely challenging race.
There will also be judicial spots on the ballot, more on those soon also!
