ATTN ULSTER COUNTY:

HVS, the Federation, NYSRPA, are all issue based and non-partisan and don't make party line endorsements... When there are important issues and / or candidates from within the sporting / gun owner community we want you to know.

Going into primary elections today please know there are several elections today which have the potential to affect Ulster County Sportsmen & Gun Owners...

Probably the most important is John Parete... He is currently the County Legislator For District 22 which includes Towns of Denning, Hardenburgh, Olive & Shandaken... He is a registered Democrat who has been a friend of the sportsmen in past legislative concerns. He has a challenger on the Democrat Line Kathy Nolan, who is definitely not a friend of Sportsmen and Gun Owners. He is also being primaried on the Republican, the Conservative AND the Indepedence lines.

If you live in Denning, Hardenburgh Olive or Shandaken, Please know there is a primary election today that has the potential to have an affect on the sportsmen and gun owners in the 22nd district and throughout the county.

Also fellow federation member Karl Baker has a primary today in the Independence Party line for Town of Rochester's Superintendent of Highways. If you are in Rochester and registered with the Independence Party, you should know.

Three important democrat primaries for county leg seats 5, 18 and of course the already mentioned 22nd districts... Sportsmen / Gun owners registered as Democrats in these districts should should know that there are three sitting moderate democrat legislators being challenged by more extreme liberal candidates. Lynn Eckert Challenging Peter Loughran in Kingston wards 1,2&4... Doug Adams Challenging Rich Parete in Hurley/Marbletown Area, And the above mention Kathy Nolan Challenging John Parete in Denning,Hardenburgh, Olive, Shandaken District.

Here are links to sample Ballots to help you find out more info. (And FYI... if you see a blank against a named candidate, the blank means there is a candidate, but it is because of the OTB process and even though there is a blank, it is not a pass, it's still important to go support the named candidate (assuming you want the named candidate to win)
