Maloney endorses Jacobson for Newburgh mayor

U.S. Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney endorsed fellow Democrat Jonathan Jacobson for City of Newburgh mayor and Jacobson’s running-mates – Torrance Harvey and Hillary Rayford – for City Council on Monday.

Maloney, who has an office at 123 Grand St. in Newburgh, made the announcement on Jacobson’s campaign headquarters on Broadway. Among those attending were labor union representatives and Orange County Legislator Matt Turnbull.

“I am proud to endorse Jonathan Jacobson for mayor of the City of Newburgh because I know he will work every day to make a difference for all neighborhoods of this city,” Maloney said.

Jacobson, incumbent Mayor Judy Kennedy and former City Councilman John Giudice are all seeking the mayor’s seat in the Nov. 3 general election. Kennedy is on the ballot as an Independence candidate after losing a Sept. 10 Democratic Party primary to Jacobson. Giudice is running as a Republican and Conservative, and on the “Reform” line.

Harvey and Rayford will run against former City Councilwoman Christine Bello and John Penney, who are both running on the Republican and Conservative, Independence and Reform lines.
