Pamela B. Krimsky
Candidate for Ulster County Legislator, District 9 (Lloyd & Platekill):
A letter from Pamela Krimsky:
I am Pamela Krimsky, the Democratic Candidate for Ulster County Legislator, District 9. This district includes about half of Highland and parts of Plattekill.
Born in New York City, I have one son. Trained as a painter, in the late 70’s, I fell in love with the Hudson River Valley, and began living and working here. In 2007, I settled in Highland. Since then, I have been very active politically and in 2014, began serving on the Town of Lloyd Democratic Committee.
I believe our community badly needs jobs which pay a living wage, not the minimum wage, jobs with benefits. We also need training for these jobs. I believe a good government is responsible to work towards full and productive employment. And, I also believe transparency in government is vital to moving this system towards one which works for everybody.
The photo is from February 2017, taken at a public forum I organized on Single Payer Healthcare at the Family Partnership in Poughkeepsie. My guests were Dr. Fabio Danisi, the Head of Neurology at Mid-Hudson Regional Hospital, who was present, and Katie Robbins, Executive Director of Physicians for a National Health Plan, who zoomed in and answered questions from attendees. Single Payer is now moving forward. Changes often require years of effort from those people working towards it.
