Larkin endorses O’Donnell for Congress

Republican 18th Congressional District candidate Jim O’Donnell touted this week the endorsement of state Sen. Bill Larkin, a fellow Republican who’s retiring this year after 40 years in Albany.

“I’ve known Jimmy for 35 years, and there is no one more suited to lead us in Congress,” Larkin said in a campaign press release. “Jimmy is a dedicated family man who has lived a life of service to others. I’ve worked alongside him throughout his career with the New York State Police, as Chief of the MTA Police, and in Orange County government, and I know he will have our back in Washington.”

Other local Republicans who recently endorsed O’Donnell are Wallkill supervisor and former Orange County Executive Ed Diana, for whom O’Donnell used to work; Orange County Sheriff Carl DuBois; and Dutchess County Sheriff Butch Anderson. O’Donnell also was endorsed by the New York State Fraternal Order of Police.

Diana said it was “impossible to measure just how profound his impact would be” when he appointed O’Donnell deputy county executive.

“Jimmy’s approach was to never accept the status quo, work to find a solution, and always put the people of Orange County first,” Diana said. “I could not say this any more enthusiastically – we need Jimmy in Congress working for us.”
