We are on a short break till the New Year and shall continue with the “Blue Wave” mission; prepare for 2019 elections and will put forth issues & legislation pertaining to Ulster county and NY state.
The Campaign Committee would like to reiterate a hearty Thank You! to all the dedicated volunteers in Ulster county and our friends and neighbors helping throughout CD#19 in a vigorous campaign to help restore democracy and electing Congressman-elect Antonio Delgado. The victories with State Senator-elect Jen Metzger, State Senator-elect James Skoufis, reelection of Assembly member Kevin Cahill and our new U.C.

G O O D N E W S !!!
Last Monday, the Democratic caucus in the U.C. Legislature was emboldened with a one vote advantage, they decided to initiate action to reclaim the majority position by waging a challenge to the GOP leadership. The Dem caucus voted and put forth: Hector Rodriquez for Chairman of the Legislature, Jonathan Heppner for Majority Leader and Lynn Eckert for Majority Whip. Our Dem candidates will challenge the current GOP leadership on Jan. 7th in a floor vote. Note: other leadership positions – Vice Chair and chairpersons for various committees will be appointed by the Chairperson of the legislative body.
U.C. Democratic Women enthusiastically support the Dem caucus’ initiative to reclaim the majority. We will encourage the voters to contact their legislator to vote YES TO RECLAIM THE MAJORITY. We encourage every legislator to be true blue.
We wish everyone a happy and healthy holiday.
Gladys I Figueroa
Chair – UCDW
