The Mid-Hudson News Network reports that The Ulster County Republican Party Committee nominated a Democrat, the four-term incumbent Sheriff Paul Van Blarcum, for re-election at the GOP nominating convention May 30 in Kingston. Last week, Ulster County Democrats backed Juan Figueroa instead of Van Blarcum. The four-term sheriff will also be on the Independence Party line on the November ballot. "At the Sheriff's Office, we try not to be political at all; we represent everybody," Van Blarcum said at the event. "I campaign on the promises that we made and kept, I campaign on the promise that I will not lose, I'm in this to win it for sure.” Read the full story in the Mid-Hudson News Network.
