Pat Ryan Commits to Working from Every Municipality in Ulster County as County Executive

Gardiner, NY – Today, candidate for Ulster County Executive Pat Ryan stated that he will commit to having office hours in every municipality in Ulster County at least once a year when elected.

“Being a leader means showing up and listening. Ulster County is the size of Rhode Island, and residents should not have to travel to Kingston to have their concerns heard by their government,” said Ryan. “I will make it a priority as County Executive to always be accessible and am committing to holding office hours in every municipality in our County. I will utilize town halls, local libraries, and other county offices to make myself available to residents and local officials, and I will commit to working out of each municipality at least once a year.”

“It is essential for the next County Executive to work with all twenty towns, three villages and the City of Kingston to foster collaboration across all levels of local government. Not only will I represent every community in Ulster County, but I will bring County government to the people.”



Pat Ryan is a fifth-generation Ulster County resident and a native of Kingston, NY. He graduated from West Point and served two combat tours in Iraq, before returning home to start two businesses to deliver better technology to our troops overseas. Pat was the runner-up in the Democratic primary for U.S Congress in New York’s 19th District. Pat resides in Gardiner, NY, with his wife, Rebecca.
