Jen Metzger is obviously thrilled to win the race for Ulster County executive

KINGSTON – Democrats hold the enrollment advantage in Ulster County and it paid off for Jen Metzger, who defeated Ulster Town Supervisor, Republican Jim Quigley by a 47.24 percent to 37.99 percent margin.

Metzger told supporters in Kingston Tuesday night that voters in Ulster County stood up for democracy.

“They stood up for our rights. They stood up for a fair, equitable and sustainable society, because they came out and voted for candidates who stand for those values,” she said.

Metzger is a one-term Democratic state senator, who lost to Orange County-based Michael Martucci. He opted not to seek re-election.
