Schmitt announces he will run in 99th Assembly District as Lines are Set
Next generation reformer and conservative Republican Assembly candidate Colin Schmitt today confirmed that with the finalization of district lines he will be running in the new 99th Assembly District. The new 99th Assembly Districts includes the towns of Stony Point in Rockland County, and New Windsor, Hamptonburgh, Goshen, Wawayanda, Chester, Cornwall, Blooming Grove, Woodbury, and Highlands in Orange County.
Since May 2011 Schmitt has been actively campaigning across Orange and Rockland Counties as an alternative to incumbent Assemblywoman Nancy Calhoun. Schmitt has raised nearly $25,000 for his campaign.
Colin Schmitt said, “Albany finally completed redistricting. While the process was flawed at least people now have the opportunity to consider candidates they would like to represent them in Albany. I have been campaigning every day to defeat double dipper Calhoun and her political allies and along the way amassed crucial support on every level. In Albany I will fight for ethics reform, job creation, tax and mandate relief, 2nd Amendment rights, and protection of life. Through this election cycle I will continue to work hard and earn the support of the residents of the 99th Assembly District so that I may serve them in Albany.”
