The difference between the two candidates could not be more stark. VOTE Pat Ryan to represent CD19! Pat Ryan, Ulster County Executive, is running against Republican Marc Molinaro, a hard right candidate who has pledged allegiance to former President Trump. Molinaro, in the state legislature from 2007-11, is anti-choice, voted multiple times against marriage equality rights, opposed unshackling women in jail even as they gave birth, and opposed New York’s Reproductive Health Care Act to protect the rights of women. Pat Ryan is a veteran and an Ulster County native, and its current County Executive, who supports working family protections, fair taxation, individual rights to health care and safe communities, and climate security for our future. We must elect Pat Ryan on August 23 - and it will take ALL of us to do it! Be sure to vote and remind all your like-minded friends and neighbors to VOTE. Questions?
