Hayes says Ryan camp spreading “false” information about him

KINGSTON – The campaign of Patrick Ryan, who is the Democratic candidate for Ulster County executive in the April special election, is spreading “false” information that is “disappointing,” Republican-Conservative candidate Jack Hayes said Tuesday.

In a news release on Monday, Ryan noted failed political campaigns conducted by Hayes, but did not mention his successful ones including serving as Gardiner town supervisor and county legislator.

Hayes was also critical of county Democratic Chairman Frank Cardinale for lumping Hayes into what Cardinale called the Republican Party’s increasingly “xenophobic, anti-environment, and anti-woman” agenda.

“Neither one of these men know me because if they knew me they wouldn’t make remarks about my reputation like that,” Hayes said. “I have gotten along with all sorts of people, all sorts of races and religion. I grew up in Sullivan County and I remember seeing people with tattoos on their wrists and trying to acclimate to life in America again. What they are trying to portray is not Jack Hayes. Jack Hayes knows and loves Americans of all races, creeds and religions.”

Ryan’s news release listed his being a West Point graduate and Iraq combat veteran, but does not mention Hayes’ active duty and Air National Guard service, and career in the State Police.
