Report from Town Board member
Democratic Candidates for state and federal seats need our help
Congressman Paul Tonko is running to retain his seat representing NY 20th Congressional District. The eastern third of the Town of Schodack is in the 20th CD. Congressman Tonko has been a voice for progressive Democrats as well as a voice of reason in an increasingly dysfunctional Congress.
Learn how you can help Paul as he campaigns to represent our interests in Washington.
Zephyr Teachout is running for the state’s 19th district congressional seat, which represents half of the Town of Schodack. The former Democratic gubernatorial primary underdog is now the early (presumptive) favorite to replace outgoing Republican Chris Gibson, and that is a big deal for the ideological balance locally and nationally.
The New York Times calls her “a national expert on political corruption and an advocate of…transparency and political reform” on behalf of people whose voices have been drowned out by big corporations and powerful insiders.
Zephyr is currently a law professor and lives in Dutchess County.

Shaun Francis is running to unseat the Republican incumbent in the New York State Senate 43rd SD.
Recently, Shaun said, "Seeking and holding public office is an honor and an obligation to serve others. It comes with a responsibility to serve the community and protect citizens. At the Federal level we hear a lot about doing what we can to protect the nation from foreign terrorists. Here, in New York State, we need a State Government focused on protecting its residents from dangers here at home. Providing clean safe drinking water is not a choice. It is not something we trade off in legislation in order to cut taxes for the wealthy donor class. Clean safe drinking water is a natural born right, and every day that even one resident of the 43rd Senate District does not have access to clean water is another day that our Government is failing us."
