2019 County Comptroller Endorsement Process

Ulster People for Justice and Democracy is now accepting applications from candidates seeking our endorsement in special election for Ulster County Comptroller.

We ask that candidates seeking our endorsement complete our 2019 Candidate Questionnaire and submit a resumé and candidate bio to runforoffice@ulsterpeople.org by Saturday, June 1.

Our endorsement committee will reach out to candidates to schedule an interview after receiving their questionnaires.

Candidates will also have the opportunity to address our voting membership at a general meeting. Our next meeting is on Monday, May 20 from 6-8 PM in Rosendale. Candidates may request a speaking slot upon submitting their questionnaire.

The committee will make a recommendation based on platform support and viability as a candidate. Final endorsement decisions are determined by a vote of our voting membership. That vote is tentatively scheduled for the evening of Monday, June 24.
