Barrett’s experience and performance make her an easy choice for this paper’s endorsement.
New York State Assembly
In the race for the 106th district in the New York State Assembly, incumbent Didi Barrett (D) is being challenged by newcomer Dr. Terry Sullivan (R).
Barrett has served in office since 2012 — working hard for the residents of the Hudson Valley. As evidenced by her famed Diner Stop Tours, during which she visits local eateries to confab with her constituency, Barrett clearly has a finger on the pulse of the community.
A Millbrook resident, Barrett has worked to garner funds for everything from the renovation of Memorial Hall in Pine Plains (to become a regional performing arts center) to throwing her support behind the eight-mile northward extension of the Harlem Valley Rail Trail to reforming Albany.
While Dr. Sullivan, a Copake resident, has made some promises that sound appealing, Barrett’s experience and performance make her an easy choice for this paper’s endorsement. - Millerton News
