POUGHKEEPSIE, NY – With the backing of both the Dutchess and Putnam County Committees at today’s GOP Convention in Poughkeepsie, NYS Senator Sue Serino announced that she has been designated as the 2020 Republican candidate for the 41st District.
Senator Sue Serino said, “Serving the residents of the 41st Senate District has been the honor of my lifetime and I am grateful for the voters who have put their trust in me to be their voice. Albany lives in a bubble—out of touch politicians are working overtime to nickel and dime hard-working taxpayers, put criminals ahead of law-abiding citizens, and push through extreme policies that have real impacts on the lives of Hudson Valley residents. Since day one, my goal has always been to put the residents of the 41st Senate District first, and together, we can continue to move our community forward.”
Dutchess County Republican Committee Chairman Michael McCormack said, “Senator Serino has been a voice of reason in the NYS Senate for the people of her district. Having Sue as our Senator in Dutchess County provides the confidence that our residents are truly represented with practical solutions to the complex issues we face as NYS residents. It is without a doubt that Sue is the right person for the job as our voice in Albany. We look forward to having her in Albany again doing the work of the people so very well.”
Putnam County Republican Committee Chairman Anthony Scannapieco said, “Senator Sue Serino has always been the strong, independent leader we need fighting for us and I am proud to stand in support of her candidacy for re-election. Sue has the heart—and the fight—we need to pushback against the extreme policies coming out of Albany every day.”
Staff Sergeant Jennifer Dillon, Town of Poughkeepsie Committee Member and veteran nominated Senator Sue Serino at the Convention, and said, “Senator Serino is a long-time champion for causes that matter most to Hudson Valley residents. Sue knows that every dollar matters to our families and fights tirelessly to oppose tax increases by out-of-touch politicians. She has made our heroes a top priority, leading the fight to successfully secure resources that our veterans need to thrive, and she’s put an unprecedented spotlight on Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses endemic to our area. Sue has brought about such positive change in the past five years and we need to keep that forward momentum going!”
Stephen Reverri, First Vice Chair of the Dutchess County GOP, seconded the nomination of Senator Serino and said, “Sue is exactly who we need to keep in Albany. Honest, hard working, accessible, and clear-minded. Sue continuously shows through her actions, she is there for all the right reasons, to represent us.”
Kevin McConville, Executive Assistant to Putnam County Republican Committee Chairman Anthony Scannapieco, also seconded the nomination of Senator Serino, and said, “On behalf of the people of Putnam County, and our Republican Chairman Anthony Scannapieco, it is a privilege and an honor to nominate Senator Sue Serino for re-election to the 41st Senate District. Senator Serino’s leadership and service to others serve as an inspiration to all, especially young girls and boys in the Hudson Valley. Her commitment to represent seniors, veterans and all of us is exemplary.”
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.”
SERINO RELEASES TV AD
WAPPINGER, NY—The re-election campaign of Senator Sue Serino released its most recent television commercial featuring two very special guests—her mother and mother-in-law. With animosity, and division driving too much of this year’s election cycle, the thirty-second spot focuses on issues that bring people together. The message is clear, Senator Sue Serino has found the middle ground on issues that matter most to Hudson Valley residents and has delivered results for our local community.
ALBANY, NY—With Senator John DeFrancisco suspending his campaign, Senators Sue Serino and Terrence Murphy today announced their support for their local County Executive Marcus Molinaro as he continues to build momentum in his bid for NYS Governor.
Senator Sue Serino whose Senate District covers most of Dutchess County said, “Having known Marc Molinaro for nearly a decade and seeing first-hand the way he has used cooperative leadership to develop and transform our community, I know that he has what it takes to get New York back on track. At a time when people are disillusioned with out-of-touch politics plagued by corruption, wasteful spending, and ego, Marcus has the energy, integrity and compassion necessary to bring New Yorkers together. We believe in a better future for New York. Marc Molinaro is the one to make that future a reality.”
Senator Terrence Murphy said, "Working with County Executive Molinaro has allowed me to see firsthand his passion for public service. As County Executive he has moved Dutchess forward by putting people before politics. As Governor, I know he will do the same."
