Lifelong Democrats and officials Joan Skinner and Vincent C. Finiza to serve as Co-Chairs

The Democrats for Schmitt coalition has launched to support the re-election of Assemblyman Colin J. Schmitt (R,C,I,LBT,SAM- New Windsor). Lifelong registered Democrats and past Democrat officials Town Clerk Joan Skinner of Stony Point and Chester Town Councilman Vincent C. Finiza will serve as Co-Chairs of the coalition.

Assemblyman Colin Schmitt who is serving his first term in the State Legislature has worked across the aisle in bipartisan fashion since his first day of taking office. Schmitt has consistently worked with members of both parties, especially local leaders in communities across his district.

Joan Skinner stated, “I am proud to fully support and endorse Assemblyman Colin Schmitt for re-election. I am a lifelong registered Democrat who served for many years as the elected Town Clerk of Stony Point. I have had the privilege to work closely with Assemblyman Schmitt to assist the residents of our district. Colin is always just a phone call away, ready to assist in any matter. Party doesn’t matter to him. He puts the work in for each and every resident of our district. Today it can seem that we are more divided than ever, but we have a bipartisan Assemblyman who is bringing people together and successfully serving all of us. Colin is an example for others to follow and with his strong record of bipartisan success we need him to keep serving us.”

Vincent C. Finiza stated, “Assemblyman Colin Schmitt has my full support. He has worked with me, a lifelong Democrat, with no concern for party affiliation. Colin is just focused on helping his constituents. Whether it is preserving our communities against over development, protecting our water, supporting small businesses, or assisting and supporting our first responders especially during the COVID-19 crisis Colin has been there. Colin is always available to help when called upon, he doesn’t stop until there is a solution. In a time when there is so much uncertainty and division in our nation Colin Schmitt is a leader who brings people together, regardless of party, to get the job done. Please join me in re-electing our Assemblyman Colin Schmitt so he can keep working for us in bipartisan fashion.”

Assemblyman Colin J. Schmitt stated, “I want to thank Joan and Vin for their support and kind words. When it comes to helping our district I put party aside and work to get the job done. I am proud of my bipartisan track record of real results for our district and I plan to continue to deliver for our Hudson Valley values when re-elected. I welcome support from all parties and encourage all residents to reach out at any time if I can help them.”
