Saugerties incumbent Democrat unopposed
Patricia R. Doxsey reports in the Daily Freeman that incumbent Democratic Ulster County Legislator Joseph Maloney from Saugerties is running unopposed for a third term in District 2. “We need to stop the corruption,” Maloney said about his candidacy. He wants to “open investigations and inquiries into the millions we have so inefficiently given away or wasted or turned a blind eye to,” and wants to reduce the county’s fleet of vehicles taken home, and investigate “time theft and unnecessary” overtime.
