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