Rockland County Democrats Endorse SkoufisJun 11th, 2012 | By HV Insider | Category: Political
The Rockland County Democratic Committee unanimously endorsed Woodbury Councilman James Skoufis on Thursday in the race for the new 99th Assembly District currently held by Nancy Calhoun. Calhoun will be retiring at year’s end.
“Stony Point and the rest of the District need a representative in the Assembly who understands the needs of middle class families and will fight for the two most pressing issues in this economy: property tax reform and jobs,” said Skoufis.
“On the Woodbury Town Board, I have worked alongside Democrats, Republicans, and Independents for a better community and will continue to bring my people-first, common-sense approach to Albany,” added Skoufis. “I am very thankful for the support of the Stony Point and Rockland County Democratic Committees and look forward to working with them and being a strong voice for their communities.”
The new 99th Assembly District includes the Towns of Blooming Grove, Chester, Cornwall, Goshen, Hamptonburgh, Highlands, New Windsor, Wawayanda, and Woodbury in Orange County and Stony Point in Rockland County.
