Democrat Dave Clegg and Republican Mike Kavanagh, seeking the post of Ulster County district attorney at Nov. 5’s election, offer voters competing visions of the role of the county’s chief law enforcement officer.
Kavanagh, 48 and a Saugerties resident, is a career prosecutor and son of a former Ulster County DA and State Supreme Court judge. He currently serves as senior assistant district attorney, second in command to DA Holley Carnright, who will step down in December after 12 years at the post.
Clegg, 66 and a Woodstock resident, is a trial attorney who has spent the bulk of his career litigating non-criminal cases including taking on corporations like Walmart and going after corporate polluters. He also competed in last year’s Democratic primary for Congress, losing that race to Antonio Delgado.
