Mid-Hudson News reports that Democrats took the District Attorney positions in three Hudson Valley county elections. In Dutchess County, the news outlet says Anthony Parisi is the first Democrat to ever be elected to the position. In In Ulster County, Democrat Manny Nneji, the Chief Assistant District Attorney beat Michael Kavanagh, a Republican. And in Columbia County, Chris Liberati-Conant was elected District Attorney. Now the Democrats there control the DA’s Office, Sheriff, Coroner, and both judgeships with Republicans elected to the County Clerk and County Treasurer seats. Just two years ago, the Republicans controlled every countywide office in Columbia County. Liberati-Conant said, “We’re here to make the District Attorney’s office a place of transparency, fairness, and accountability for all,” adding “Together we’ll forge a path that truly serves the people of Columbia County, no matter their background or circumstances.” Read more about this story at Mid-Hudson News.
