A Facebook page entitled “Sue Zimet for State Assembly” has just gone live, saying it’s the official page for her run for the 103rd Assembly District.
It’s unclear is Zimet, a Democrat, is directly involved in the page, though her name has been whispered for some time as a possible contender against Assemblyman Kevin Cahill, D-Kingston, who currently holds the seat.
The page is sparse right now, with a few photos of her standing next to politicians, in shin-deep water of the flooding Wallkill River and one of those classic cheery-family-on-a-green-lawn photos you often see in political campaigns.
It also has a list of her accomplishments as current supervisor of the Town of New Paltz.
From 2003 to 2011 Zimet served as an Ulster County Legislator and in 2006 took on state Sen. John Bonacic, R-Mount Hope, but lost.
I have a call out to Zimet to see if she’s directly involved in the Facebook page. Will update when I hear back.
UPDATE: Well, it looks like the page has suddenly been removed. I’ll update if and when I can get more information.
UPDATE TWO: I just received a call from Zimet’s assistant Carol Connolly, who said that there’s no official announcement for Zimet to run for the 103rd Assembly District, though she said she wasn’t sure if Zimet was considering a run.
