Orange County Clerk Annie Rabbitt is running for the 42nd New York State Senate District. Rabbitt was joined by county officials, local community leaders and members of the public as she kicked off her campaign to represent the 42nd District, which includes parts of Orange, Ulster and Delaware Counties and all of Sullivan County at a press conference in Goshen NY.
“My priority has always been our community, our issues and our people. Now, more than ever, we need a strong voice representing us in Albany to ensure the Hudson Valley and Catskills are not forgotten. That is why I am proud to announce my campaign to be the next Senator from the 42nd District,” said Rabbitt.
Rabbitt continued, “The issues facing our district are problems that can be solved. When in the State Senate I will fight to ensure we receive our fair share of school aid, to deliver property tax relief, be a champion for job growth and economic development including downtown redevelopment, community revitalization and small businesses empowerment. We must fix our local transportation infrastructure and help improve the quality of life in this state. I have the track record to get it done. During my time as County Clerk and prior to that in the State Assembly and local government I have worked across the aisle to get results and accomplish any task at hand. The values I learned as a small business owner and president of my local chamber of commerce have guided me through every step.”
Rabbitt is a longtime community leader and small business owner. She currently serves as County Clerk of Orange County. She previously has served in the New York State Assembly as well as on the Warwick Town Board, Greenwood Lake Village Board and as President of the Greenwood Lake Chamber of Commerce.
