At our February meeting the Gardiner Democratic Committee voted overwhelmingly to endorse Pat Ryan for the Democratic nomination to run in NY’s 19th Congressional District against incumbent Republican John Faso. We believe that Pat a) represents solid Democratic values, and b) he is the most electable of the six candidates currently in the race.
Please join us on Tuesday March 6 at 7:30pm for a Petition Party at La Charla at 127 Main Street (formerly Shea O’Brians) in New Paltz! You’ll have a chance to hear Pat speak, sign our petition and sign up for petitioning shifts. The cash bar outside the main room will be available throughout the event. Our main room opens at 8pm.
Pat Ryan Speech to Dutchess County Democrats
Pat was born and raised in Kingston, NY, where his family has been for five generations. After graduating from West Point, Pat was deployed to Iraq to served two combat tours, including a tour as the lead intelligence officer for an infantry battalion of 1,000 soldiers and officers responsible for ground operations in Mosul.
While in a war zone in Iraq, Pat experienced how outdated technology was limiting and endangering our troops. After leaving the military with the rank of Captain, Pat launched a technology firm that worked to save lives by equipping troops with better tools. Pat lives in Gardiner with his wife, Rebecca.
