The 2017 New York State Primary Election for municipalities and counties is on Tuesday, September 12th.

To increase awareness of next week’s election and to help voters learn a little more about the candidates, HVNN is video-recording interviews with candidates in contested primary races.

Beginning with primary races for Poughkeepsie Common Council and Dutchess County Legislature, there are several contested races on the Democratic ballot:

City of Poughkeepsie Common Council

Ward 3: Nathaniel Almeida and Lorraine Johnson (I);

Ward 7: Jason Baker and Randall Johnson (I);

Ward 8: Matthew McNamara (I) and Josh Simons;

At-Large candidates: Ann Finney and Mike Young.

Dutchess County Legislature

District 9: Randy Johnson and Kari Rieser (I);

District 10: Barbara Jeter-Jackson (I) and Warren Jones;

District 16: Ved Shravah and Frits Zernike.

The candidates are being asked the same questions and have received the questions in advance:

  1. What are you “bringing to the table”?  What do you feel best qualifies you to serve on the Common Council/County Legislature?
  2. What are your top 3 priorities for the city/county and your ward/district?
  3. With you and your opponent both being in the same party, we can assume you share similar ideals – so, that said, why are you the better candidate to serve on the Poughkeepsie Common Council/Dutchess County Legislature?

Watch for links to new candidate videos throughout the weekend and up to Election Day, Tuesday, September 12th:

Primary Election Candidate: Ann Finney, Poughkeepsie City Council

Primary Election Candidate: Kari Rieser, Dutchess County Legislature

Primary Election Candidate: Josh Simons, Poughkeepsie City Council

Primary Election Candidate: Mike Young, Poughkeepsie City Council
