To the editor:
Michelle Hinchey, who wants to be a State Senator, has an appalling voting record. She rarely voted prior to running for State Senator. Ms. Hinchey never voted in 2007, 2009, and 2011 in Ulster County. Ms. Hinchey lived in NYC from 2011–2016, where she also failed to vote. In 2017, Ms. Hinchey moved back to Ulster County and again no record of her vote. In June 2018, there was an important democratic primary for the 19th NY Congressional seat, and again Ms. Hinchey failed to vote. In February 2018, there was a very important special election for the 102nd assembly district seat, where the democratic candidate lost by a small number of votes, and again Ms. Hinchey failed to vote! Ms. Hinchey never voted in a presidential primary before 2020.
Ms. Hinchey, despite coming from a political family, has shown very little interest in participating in our democracy. Michelle Hinchey’s failure to vote is troubling, and women had to fight for this right! Ms. Hinchey’s lack of action clearly shows she is not ready to be a State Senator.
*Michelle Hinchey’s voting record was received from the Ulster County Board of Elections.
