Neuhaus touts endorsements by supervisors, mayors

Orange County Executive Steve Neuhaus has announced the endorsements of 23 elected officials in the county who are supporting his re-election on Nov. 7, including 19 fellow Republicans and four Democrats.

The list released by his campaign on Monday included 12 Republican town supervisors: Alex Jamieson of Chester; Charlie Carnes of Crawford; Gary Spears of Deerpark; Doug Bloomfield of Goshen; Bob Jankowski of Hamptonburgh; Ralph Ford of Minisink; Mike Hayes of Montgomery; George Green of New Windsor; Gil Piaquadio of Newburgh; Mike Rost of Tuxedo; Mike Sweeton of Warwick; and John Razzano of Wawayanda.

There also were six Republican village mayors – Kyle Roddey of Goshen; James Pawliczek of Florida; Jesse Dwyer of Greenwood Lake; Steve Welle of Harriman; Steve Brescia of Montgomery (who is also the county Legislature chairman); and Sue Rumbold of Walden – and Monroe Councilman Tony Cardone, a Republican who is running unopposed for town supervisor next month.

Sweeton, who competed against Neuhaus for GOP support in 2013 to run for county executive, and who is president of the Orange County Association of Towns, Village and Cities, said in a press release from the Neuhaus campaign: “Steve and his team have worked day and night in turning Orange County around. Spending has decreased, our tax rate is lower, and thousands of jobs have been created. On behalf of the Supervisors and Mayors that have endorsed Steve, I’m happy to say that we have a partner in County Government working with our municipalities. Orange County is moving in the right direction and under Steve’s leadership. I know many more bright days are ahead of us.”

The four Democrats who endorsed Neuhaus were county legislator Curlie Dillard of Newburgh; Middletown Common Council President Miguel Rodrigues; Monroe Mayor Jim Purcell; and Woodbury Supervisor David Sutz.
