POUGHKEEPSIE – Dutchess County Executive Marcus Molinaro, a Republican, has received the endorsement from the Democratic mayor of Millbrook, Laura Hurley.

In another endorsement, Washington Town Supervisor Gary Ciferri, a Republican, said he has known Molinaro personally and professionally for over 20 years.
“We both served as mayors of small villages in the 1990s and he has always been there for me,” Ciferri said
