Candidates for public office file petitions

MID-HUDSON – Candidates wanting their names on the November election ballot are submitting their signature petitions to meet the requirements.

Democrat Karen Smythe, who is running for the 41st State Senate District seat, submitted her petitions to the State Board of Elections with “many times more than required by state law to secure her ballot lines,” a news release from her camp stated. She is seeking the Democrat, Working Families and Women’s Equality ballot lines.

Democrat Juan Figueroa filed over 3,000 signatures for the Ulster County Sheriff’s position. “That is over three times as many as required by law,” county Democratic leadership stated.

Republican Colin Schmitt, who is seeking the 99th Assembly District seat, filed petitions for four ballot lines in the fall election. Schmitt said he gathered more than triple the needed Republican, Conservative and Reform Party signatures and nearly double the needed Independence Party signatures.
