marc molinaro for New York State governor
Marc Molinaro

Marc was first elected to public office at the age of 18 in 1994, serving on the Village of Tivoli Board of Trustees. In 1995, he became the youngest mayor in America at age 19. He was re-elected mayor five times and elected four times to the Dutchess County Legislature. In 2006, he brought his passion for public service to Albany when elected to represent the 103rd District in the New York State Assembly.

In November of 2011, Marc was elected as Dutchess County's 7th County Executive. At 36, he took office as the youngest County Executive in county history.

Upon taking the office of County Executive, Marc sought to create a comprehensive economic development strategy, one that more aggressively attracts and retains private sector companies and jobs. This strategy streamlines the County's economic development apparatus, invests in a targeted marketing campaign to fill vacant commercial and industrial space, and promotes tourism as well as agri-business opportunities.

Marc has been a leader on Open Space Protection and Farmland Preservation, an advocate to preserve the Hudson River Valley Greenway and a supporter of the Greenway Compact. In 2013, the New York State Senate appointed him to the Greenway Heritage Conservancy for the Hudson River Valley. In 2014, Marc was honored by the Pace University Land Use Law Center as the recipient of its Groundbreaker's Award given to a graduate of the Center's Land Use Leadership Alliance (LULA) Training Program.

Since 2012, Marc and his Administration have transformed the way County Government does business making it smaller, smarter, and more effective. The consolidation of county departments and divisions has saved millions of taxpayer dollars. County Government operates with its smallest workforce in 30 years without diminishing core services such as law enforcement, mental health, and road repair. It ended the taxpayer subsidy at the Resource Recovery Agency (RRA) and is doing the same at the Airport with a private operator and commercial investments. County Government now provides grants to municipalities that share, consolidate, and make more effective their programs and services all in an effort to cut the total cost of government.

In 2015, Marc launched "Think Differently," an initiative to ensure equal access and service, along with greater outreach, to those living with special needs and developmental disabilities. Nearly 100 communities across New York are implementing the "Think Differently" principles. Efforts continue to make County Government more accountable and responsive to the public, providing unprecedented access to county information and data with Marc himself hosting over 60 town halls and public forums in his first 3 1/2 years as County Executive.

As County Executive, Marc serves on the New York State Association of Counties (NYSAC) Board of Directors and in 2015 he was elected the organization's Second Vice President. He is the Vice President of the NYS County Executives Association.

Marc has been active in numerous community and civic organizations. He served as an active member of the Tivoli Fire Department as well as the Hudson River Valley Greenway Communities Council, Dutchess County Historical Society, Hudson Advisory Board, Dutchess County American Cancer Society, Dutchess County Farm Bureau, Red Hook Senior Services and Hardscrabble Committees. He has also been a Red Hook Little League coach.

In 2010, he was honored with the VV Anderson Award for Community Service by the Anderson Center for Autism. In 2011, Astor Services for Children and Families presented him with the Louise Marillac Public Service Award in recognition of the work he has done on behalf of children and families in the community. In 2014, Marc received the Champion for Elder Rights and Safety Award from the Coalition on Elder Abuse in Dutchess County. In 2015, he was honored for outstanding leadership by the Mid-Hudson Chapter of the American Red Cross. He was also honored as the Distinguished Citizen of the Year by the Boy Scouts of America, Hudson Valley Council. The FDR Home and Library bestowed their first Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt Vision Award on him and the Arc of Dutchess recognized Marc for his advocacy for those 'differently-asked.'

Molinaro is a graduate of State University of New York, Dutchess Community College, where he earned a Dutchess United Educators award, and the PACE Land Use Law Center Community Leadership Alliance. He has been recognized by the Greater Southern Dutchess Chamber of Commerce and "Capitol" news publication as one of their first "Forty under Forty" leaders. The Albany Times Union cited him as one of Albany's "True Reformers," the Hudson Register Star recognized him as a "strong advocate," and the Poughkeepsie Journal called Molinaro a "voice of reason." Hudson Valley Magazine readers have voted Molinaro the "Best Politician" in the Hudson Valley region each year from 2012-2017.

County Executive Molinaro resides in Red Hook, with his wife Corinne and children Abigail, Jack, and Elias. He enjoys coaching his son's team in the Red Hook Soccer Club.

Chele Farley for US Senate
Chele Chiavacci Farley

Chele Farley is running for the United States Senate to provide every New York family with the opportunity to succeed. Specifically, Chele is focused on recapturing the $48 billion dollars more that New Yorkers pay in federal taxes each year than the state receives. By addressing the unfair treatment of New York taxpayers, Chele intends to invest in the state's crumbling roads and bridges and to fix the nation's largest mass transportation system. Chele recognizes that these infrastructure improvements will create jobs, promote the state's long-term economic health and ease the crushing burden placed on property taxpayers.

Chele Chiavacci Farley was inspired by her parents to work hard, succeed and help others. Chele's father was a scientist who encouraged her to study math, science and engineering. Her interest in these fields led her to major in Industrial Engineering at Stanford University and influenced her commitment to expand educational opportunities in these challenging subjects for all children.

After graduating from Stanford, Chele joined the financial services industry in New York, where she has lived for the last twenty-five years. She worked at UBS Capital and Goldman Sachs before joining Mistral Capital International, which is a private equity investment firm specializing in the real estate and energy industries. As a Partner and Managing Director, Chele is responsible for sourcing, executing and overseeing principal investments around the world. She also is a member of several corporate boards, where she focuses on financial responsibility and limiting spending.

To provide students from all backgrounds with the opportunity to receive an outstanding college education, Chele was the Co-Chair of the East Coast Advisory Board of Questbridge, which partners with 40 prestigious universities and has sent over 10,000 talented low-income students to these schools free of charge. 

Chele Farley and her husband, Richard, are raising three sons. Chele served as the New York State Republican Party's New York City Finance Chair.

 Jonathan Trichter for State Comptroller

Jonathan Trichter

Jonathan Trichter is an investment banker and public finance expert. He has worked for J.P. Morgan, the restructuring firm MAEVA Group LLC and served on underwriting teams for the largest municipal bond issuers in the country. His work has helped state and local governments identify major long-term liabilities that were previously unaccounted for.

Active in New York government, policy and civic causes for decades, Jonathan spent his early career in New York City government and on political campaigns. He worked for the New York Public Interest Research Group in high school.

At J.P. Morgan, Jonathan covered the Office of New York State Comptroller where he compiled a directory of New York's outstanding bonds to provide the full details of the State's debt profile for the incoming Comptroller, Tom DiNapoli.


In 2010, Jonathan served as policy director on Harry Wilson's campaign for New York State Comptroller. His work including researching and contributing to white papers on the New York State pension system that were covered extensively by the media and helped earn Mr. Wilson the endorsement of every major newspaper in the State, included The New York Times.

Jonathan went on to work for Mr. Wilson's restructuring firm, MAEVA, where he was a key leader on the largest out-of-court pension consent process in a corporate restructuring in recent years for a private sector workout. He later ran a municipal restructuring subsidiary of MAEVA, which was tapped by the Pew Charitable Trusts to work on public pension restructurings across the county. In this capacity, Jonathan helped lead some of the most meaningful pension reforms implemented by cities and states at that time. In Jacksonville, Florida he worked with Mayor Alvin Brown and the police and fire unions to restructure one of the most distressed public-safety pensions in the country; the work ultimately preserved the system's defined benefit status via a consensual solution that saved the city $1.5 billion while funding the pension plan in a reasonable period without major benefit cuts to its members.

Jonathan spent 2014 working for a venture capital firm owned by his wife's family. There he managed a digital media startup, serving as its President in preparation for a key round of financing. With his background in communications, Jonathan took monthly traffic from under 2 million "uniques" per month to over 7 million in just 60 days. Afterwards, he worked directly with the VC firm's chairman on a successful Series A, in which Discovery Communications led the round along with participation from Softbank, RRE Ventures, Greycroft Partners and Sterling.

In 2015, Jonathan returned to MAEVA as a principal.

Jonathan has published numerous articles and op-eds in The New York Times, The New York Post, The Daily News and others. His commentary has appeared on local news and national networks. He served as an adjunct professor at Fordham University in the political science department, and he founded a polling institute at Pace University.
