Mike Bloomberg's campaign announced he is opening a campaign office on Route 9 in Poughkeepsie soon. Canvassing for Dutchess, Ulster, Putnam, Orange, Sullivan, Broome, Columbia, Delaware, Green, Montgomery, Otsego, and Schoharie counties will be run out of the office. Otherwise, Dutchess County Sheriff Butch Anderson was again named a member of Trump's New York election team earlier this year.
