GOP town supervisor endorses Skoufis

State Sen. James Skoufis, a Cornwall Democrat gearing up for his first Senate re-election run with no announced opponent yet, wheeled out an early, cross-party endorsement on Tuesday from New Windsor Supervisor George Meyers, a Republican who returned to office in January.

“Senator Skoufis has been and will continue to be a champion for New Windsor’s residents,” Meyers said in statement from the Skoufis campaign. “In 2020, we are partnering together to rebuild our town’s infrastructure, clean up our water, promote more responsible development, and get our fair share from Albany in order to keep taxes down. He has my full support for a well-deserved re-election.”

Meyers, a retired state trooper, previously had served 12 years as town supervisor, then came back last year to challenge the fellow Republican who had unseated him 14 years earlier – George Green. Meyers beat Green in a GOP primary and went on to easily win the general election in November, running on both the Republican and Democratic lines.

“At a time when our national government continues to embarrass itself on a daily basis, I’ve always been proud to partner with people of all political affiliations on behalf of the people I represent,” Skoufis said in a statement.

Skoufis, a former assemblyman, succeeded the late Bill Larkin last year to represent the 39th Senate District, which takes in part of Orange County and two towns each in Ulster and Rockland counties.
