ZIMET ANNOUNCES CANDIDACY FOR 103rd ASSEMBLY DISTRICT
(New Paltz, NY) - New Paltz Town Supervisor Susan Zimet announces her candidacy today for the New York State Assembly’s 103rd District, which covers most of Ulster County plus Rhinebeck and Red Hook in Dutchess County. In her official campaign announcement video, above, Zimet highlights major issues facing the districts residents including real property tax reform, fracking and the environment, state testing mandates and Albany’s culture of corruption.
“As a problem solver, it is important for me to see results,” says Zimet. “The issues we care passionately about are not being addressed properly in Albany now. Instead of flowers, For Sale signs are sprouting up around our district. People cannot afford Albany politics anymore and it’s time for a change.”
Zimet’s record of lowering taxes, cutting spending, protecting the environment, and standing up for the rights of women, children and veteran’s is well documented.
“Our district needs a representative who can work cooperatively to fulfill the needs of the constituents, putting them before politics,” says Zimet, who has spent the last two years as Town Supervisor of New Paltz.
Prior to her second stint as Town Supervisor (1996-1999), she served as an Ulster County Legislator for four terms (2003-2011).
Zimet began her career in public service as an activist leading a successful effort to stop a WalMart from being built in New Paltz.
