SERINO VOWS TO STAND UP FOR COMMUNITY WHEN DECLARED REPUBLICAN NOMINEE FOR STATE SENATE
POUGHKEEPSIE, NY—Following the decision by the Dutchess County Republican Party to nominate NYS Senator Sue Serino as their candidate for the 41st Senate District, Senator Serino vowed to continue to stand up and fight to ensure that the voice of the Hudson Valley is heard in Albany.
Senator Sue Serino said, “I have been incredibly honored and humbled to have the opportunity to serve my neighbors as their State Senator. Now, more than ever—with the very real threat of NYC dominated, one-party control looming in Albany—we need independent leaders who are dedicated to ensuring that our community has a voice in the process. I have made it my mission to deliver for our local community and together we can move our community forward and ensure that the values and issues that matter most to Hudson Valley residents are put first.”
Dutchess County Republican Chairman Michael McCormack said, “Sue has a heart of gold and a fighter’s passion for doing what’s right for our local community. She has always put our needs first and has successfully fought for the things that matter most to us, like lower taxes and expanded economic development opportunities. She has brought unprecedented awareness to the Lyme Disease and heroin epidemics that are hurting families across the region, and she has stood up against corruption and proposals that would negatively impact our area. She is the best person to continue representing us, and I am honored to confirm her designation as our candidate for the 41st Senate District.”
Steve Caswell, Chair of the East Fishkill Republican Committee nominated Senator Serino at the Convention which was held in Poughkeepsie. Caswell said, “Sue Serino has contributed much to our communities; as an entrepreneur, small business owner and then in public service. She knows our community and does what is right to make it better. She’s not in this for a paycheck, she’s in it for us, and it shows in all that she has accomplished for our area—from securing funding for Lyme Disease, to grant funding for local community projects, she’s fighting for the things that matter. For as long as I have known her, Sue has always stood up for what’s right and it is my honor and privilege to officially nominate her as the Republican candidate for the 41st Senate District.”
Betsy Maas, Chair of the Union Vale Republican Committee seconded the nomination of Senator Serino, Maas said, "Senator Serino has what it takes to make a difference and to improve quality of life for everyone here in our local community. Her genuine passion for putting people first has been clear throughout her time in office and her work ethic and integrity are second to none. I am proud to help nominate Senator Sue Serino because she has a proven record of effectively advocating for our local community and I know that she will continue to fight tirelessly to ensure that our community can provide the kinds of opportunity our residents need to thrive."
