Today, Former Congressman Maurice Hinchey, endorsed my campaign for County Legislator.
In his endorsement, he wrote:
"I am very proud to endorse Tim Distel to represent the communities of Shawangunk and Wawarsing in the Ulster County Legislature.
Two years ago, at the age of 21, Tim ran for the same seat and ended up losing by only 15 votes. We need to turn that around this year.
There are numerous challenges facing Southern Ulster County including a weakened economy, flood control, and investing in a 21st century economy to spur jobs and tax relief, while protecting our precious environment.
Tim has demonstrated he is ready to take on the problems facing his constituents, and the beautiful region in which we live. From organizing charitable events for senior citizens and fundraising for community groups, to serving on the Wawarsing Environmental Conservation Commission, he has worked hard to gain a deep understanding of the community. I believe he is more than capable of leading the community to a better future.
Please join me in supporting the next generation of leadership, and elect Tim Distel to be your Ulster County Legislator on November 5th.
I thank you.
