Ulster district attorney won’t seek re-election

Ulster County District Attorney Holley Carnright announced Wednesday that he won’t seek re-election this year, closing his career with a department he has led for the last 11 years.

“I have known for many years a day would come when, if I am lucky, I’ll reach a point where I am offered a choice to select a different path,” Carnright said in a press release, which didn’t identify his new path. “I have reached that point and look forward to new challenges that await me after the conclusion of my term.”

Carnright said he hoped that Michael Kavanagh, his chief assistant for the last four years, will run for district attorney.
