Special Election April 30

Pat Ryan for Ulster County Executive - via New Paltz Dems

Democratic nominee Pat Ryan (above) will face off against a Conservative and Republican party candidate Jack Hayes on April 30 in a special election for Ulster County Executive. The special election determines who will serve out the remainder of County Executive Mike Hein’s term in office, through the end of 2019.

On Federal election day, November 5, Pat Ryan will again need voters to turn out to give him a new four-year term in office beginning in January 2020.

Pat Ryan was nominated to succeed Hein, who left to work in the Cuomo Administration. Hein was the first County Executive of Ulster County, elected in 2008 when the county charter was ratified.

A current resident of Gardiner, Ryan grew up in Kingston and attended college at West Point. Following two tours in Iraq, Ryan moved to Washington, D.C. where he co-founded a software start up while earning a Masters degree in security studies from the Georgetown School of Foreign Service at night.

Pat Ryan has a progressive vision for Ulster County  including:

• a green new deal for Ulster County with a green jobs academy to train young workers
• protecting the environment
• economic growth
• restorative justice
• fairness for immigrants
• respecting women.
Pat Ryan also was endorsed by the Upper Hudson Central Labor Council representing 30,000 union members.
