Hudson Democratic Committee Endorses Primary Winners

The Hudson City Democratic Committee has endorsed the winners of the June Primary. Hudson has a full slate of candidates for the 2019 general election and they represent the Hudson Democrat's mission of "Progress for All" and will be working for a more inclusive city that meets the needs of all of our residents.

The endorsements are for:


“We have a great set of Democratic candidates,” says Michael Chameides, Hudson 3rd Ward Supervisor and Hudson Democrat Treasurer. “It includes people who grew up in Hudson and those who moved here as adults, people with outstanding experience in government as well as passionate community members who are new to running for office.”

Before the Primary, the Hudson Democrats only endorsed candidates who at the time were running for office in uncontested races. The Primary Election had a record turnout, and Democrats voted for their preferred candidate. With this round of endorsements, the Hudson City Democratic Committee supports the voters’ decisions. The Committee encourages everyone to vote on the Democratic line at the November 5 General Election.

2019 Elections and Candidate Questionnaires!

Press Release
February 20, 2019
Hudson City Democratic Committee
New York State has scheduled primaries for local elective office on June 25, and the
Hudson City Democratic Committee will be looking at candidates much earlier than in prior years.
The petitioning process begins this year on February 26 and concludes in early April.
To be on a party line, including the Democratic line, candidates will need to collect valid
signatures
from 5% of the voters in that jurisdiction enrolled in that party.
Those signature numbers will soon be posted on the Columbia County Board of Elections site.
It is recommended that candidates gather approximately twice as many signatures as will be
legally required.
In the next few weeks, the HCDC will be interviewing candidates seeking to be on the
Democratic line, as part of its endorsement process.  Endorsed candidates will receive support
from the HCDC, including assistance with collecting signatures on petitions.
To begin that process, the HCDC has posted a brief questionnaire for candidates on its website,
http://www.hudsoncitydemocrats.org.  
We urge candidates, including incumbents, to complete a questionnaire at their earliest
convenience so that we can schedule interviews early in the petitioning process.
Please send completed questionnaires or any questions to: info@hudsoncitydemocrats.org
Thank you all!

VOTE TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 6

Together we can make a difference.

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 6
6 AM - 9 PM

LOCATION

Hudson's 3rd Ward Votes at St. Mary's Academy
301 Allen Street
Corner of Third and Allen

SAMPLE BALLOT

I’m voting Democratic (Row A) - all 11 candidates across the top. See below for details on some of the candidates.

KIRSTEN GILLIBRAND FOR US SENATOR (A5)

Gillibrand is a consistent voice against sexual assault. When the right-wing attacked ACORN with misleading and highly edited videos, she was one of the few Senators who stood up for ACORN’s important voter rights work.

PETER LYNCH AND MARGARET WALSH FOR STATE SUPREME COURT (A6 AND A7 - VOTE FOR BOTH)

Walsh and Lynch each have impressive experience and approach the bench with a commitment to fairness.

ANTONIO DELGADO FOR REPRESENTATIVE OF CONGRESS (A8)

Delgado will fight for increased access to quality health care and a fair tax policy. His opponent has been running racist ads and is complicit with Trump’s racist and sexist policy. 

AARON GLADD FOR STATE SENATE (A9)

For years, the Republican-led State Senate has blocked important legislation. Now is our chance to flip the Senate. Gladd supports investing in education, women’s rights, and unlocking economic opportunity for all.

DIDI BARRETT FOR MEMBER OF ASSEMBLY (A10)

Barrett has successfully supported local libraries, farms, environment, and economy. She is remarkably accessible, frequently attending local events.

BERNADETTE POWIS FOR CORONER (A15)

The only candidate with medical experience, Powis will work with grieving families with compassion. They can take comfort that she is facing the death scene with a stringent objectivity and making medically-informed decisions.
