VILLAGE OF FISHKILL – Former Fishkill town board member and current Dutchess County Legislator Doug McHoul recently announced that he is running for the 105th Assembly District seat.  The Republican seeks to replace current Assemblyman Kieran Lalor who announced he is not seeking re-election in 2022

McHoul currently serves as a member of the county legislature, representing District 17 which includes part of the Town of Fishkill and the Village of Fishkill.  Prior to his election to the legislature in 2019, he served as a member of the Fishkill Town Board from 2014 – 2019.

“Over the past two years, New Yorkers have been challenged like never before,” said McHoul during his announcement. “The vast majority of us are real people who want to see our government use common sense. Unfortunately, that is not an option in Washington, and it’s certainly not an option in Albany, where one-party control has had devastating effects on people like us.”

McHoul is a lifelong resident of Dutchess County and has lived in Fishkill since 2010.  McHoul and his four sisters are co-owners of the longstanding family business, McHoul Funeral Home with locations in Fishkill and Hopewell Junction.  He resides in Fishkill with his wife Stephanie and their two children.  

“I’m a homeowner, business owner, elected official, and parent. For eight years, I’ve had the privilege to represent my neighbors as a county legislator and town board member.  I believe that my real-life experience and proven track record as an elected official make me uniquely qualified to be assemblyman.”

McHoul joins Republicans Anil Beephan an East Fishkill CouncilmanCounty Legislator Mike Polasek of LaGrange, and Assemblyman Lalor’s Chief of Staff, Kira Gorman of Hopewell Junction, in the race to succeed Lalor.
