Congratulations to all our Democratic candidates in Olive, who won their races: Jim Sofranko, our new Town Supervisor, Drew Boggess, who was re-elected to the Town Board, David Edinger, who was newly elected to the Town Board, and Peggy Haug, our new Town Justice. Although our County Legislator Kathy Nolan narrowly lost her seat, Democrats held onto control of the Ulster County Legislature—by another extremely tight race. Turnout across the board was high, and it's clear from the narrow margins that EVERY VOTE COUNTS! After an extremely close margin and a full recount, we are thrilled that Dave Clegg has been elected as the first Democrat to hold the District Attorney position in Ulster County since the Civil War. Pat Ryan won as County Executive, March Gallagher was elected Comptroller, and Bryan Rounds won as Ulster County Judge. Great job candidates, voters, activists, canvassers and everyone who made it happen!
