Above all, elected officials have a responsibility to do what’s right.


With middle-class families and small businesses struggling, I felt it was wrong to impose a new tax on Dutchess County home heating bills.

That’s why, as a County Legislator, I voted against the Dutchess County home energy sales tax and, as a State Senator, I will never stop working to protect the hardworking taxpayers I represent.

New York is struggling right now. Taxes have made the state unaffordable for too many. We’re losing jobs daily. Our seniors can’t afford to stay in their homes. Our young people can’t find jobs. Middle-class families can’t keep up with tax after tax.

But, you know all of that. You see it and feel it every day. You read it in the papers each time a new report comes out ranking New York dead last for economic climate, business-friendly policies, or taxes. It seems like the only people out of touch with this reality are the politicians in Albany.

In 2014, I went to Albany to shake things up. I am running for the New York State Senate once again because I want to move our community, and our state, forward.

I’m looking forward to working with New Yorkers across the 41st Senate District to change Albany and to make New York a place where people want to live, not one they want to leave.

    A Statement from Senator Sue Serino

    Wappingers Falls, NY—The campaign to re-elect Senator Sue Serino released the following statement:

    “Recently a picture was circulated of an individual holding a ‘Karen Smythe’ sign outside of Senator Serino’s campaign office. An overzealous volunteer had removed the sign, presumably from the roadside. Upon being made aware, we made clear that our campaign does not engage in these kinds of activities and the volunteer was directed to immediately return the sign to its proper place. To be clear, the individual pictured in the photo is not the person who removed the sign, he was in the process of directing the individual who did take it, to return the sign when the picture was taken.

    Senator Serino’s signs have been stolen in droves and destroyed, and her small billboards have been vandalized and painted blue over and over again throughout this campaign. For these reasons especially, Senator Serino would never condone any efforts to remove or hurt another candidate’s materials. With negativity escalating at every level of this election cycle, Senator Serino has worked successfully to engage in positive, issues-based campaign and will continue those efforts through Election Day.”
