With an upstart Republican candidate whose well-wishers tried to get him nominated by the Democrats, and an incumbent supervisor fighting back to hold onto her job, New Paltz’s supervisor race is anything but sleepy.
Supervisor Susan Zimet made town-village consolidation and municipal finance her focuses in her recent term. Efficient but brusque, the former Ulster County lawmaker’s governing style hasn’t pleased everyone.
Rival Randall Leverette thinks he can do better. He’d like to refocus Town Board discussions on needed infrastructure repairs and “common sense” governance.
Zimet, a Democrat, is endorsed by the Working Families Party, Independence Party and the Democrats.
Leverette is endorsed by the Republicans and is running on the Common Ground third-party line.
