Ryan endorses Buttigieg

Ulster County Executive Pat Ryan declared his support on Tuesday for Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg, calling him “the right leader to unify and heal our country again.”

“I’m confident he will guide the return of our nation to smart, effective, and compassionate leadership,” Ryan said in a statement. “Pete and I share a strong commitment to ‘servant leadership’ and I am proud to endorse and support him in what is the most critical presidential election of my lifetime.”

Ryan, a Democrat who won two elections last year to fill the county executive vacancy and earn a full term, pointed to the experience he and the former South Bend mayor shared as veterans who had served overseas (Ryan in Iraq, Buttigieg in Afghanistan). He said Buttigieg offered “a bold, progressive vision for our future grounded in moral leadership and real experience, from leading a diverse industrial Midwest city to leading troops in combat.”
