Ulster Co. special election recommendation

There will be a special election for Ulster Co. Executive on Tuesday, April 30th.

The choice is between Democrat Pat Ryan and Conservative Jack Hayes. The Republicans could not put up their own candidate and are backing Hayes.

Ryan is an antigun ideologue.

Hayes does not have a record on the issue that I am aware of. He was rated ? by NRA for his previous bid for State Assembly in 2016.

Considering Ryan’s public statements on 2A, Hayes is the better choice for gun owners although I expect Ryan is going to walk all over him in the election. Hayes does not have a functioning website and has not filed any fundraising paperwork with the BoE.  Turnout will be low so an upset is not inconceivable.

Borelli running for Public Advocate

Councilman Joe Borelli announced he is running for Public Advocate against Jumaane Williams.

Borelli is legitimately pro-gun and one of the few New York Republicans I have any respect for.  Because of the enrollment disadvantage it will be an uphill battle to unseat Williams, but local 2A advocates should definitely support his campaign.

Williams wins PA race

Jumaane Williams won the race for NYC Public Advocate.

The office has little actual power, but it gives Williams a soapbox to push his extreme left agenda including gun control.  I expect he’s going to waste little time before doing that.

Voter guide for Public Advocate

The special election for NYC Public Advocate will be this Tuesday.

Gotham Gazette has a list of the nearly two dozen candidates running in the non-partisan election.  Because of the number of candidates one could win with a small plurality of votes.  The office itself is vaguely defined and has little actual power, but can be used as a soapbox and springboard for higher office as Letitia James did.  For this reason gun owners should make the best voting decision with the materials given.

Going down the list, vote AGAINST these candidates in order:

Victory shall be defined as Jumaane Williams losing.  He’s easily the worst of the bunch on 2A.

The rest of the candidates do not have public positions on guns that I’m aware of.

Pat Ryan is back

Pat Ryan, one of the Democrats who ran a primary last year for CD-19, is back and running for Ulster County Executive:

Ryan went all-in for gun control during his Congressional bid last year and his new website has this nugget:

“Pat has worked to elect Democrats across Ulster County, and has been an advocate on important issues like gun violence prevention.”

His GOP opponent has not been nominated yet, but anyone is preferable to him.
