AMERICAN LATINO COALITION ENDORSES AND FORMS LATINOS FOR SCHMITT
Watch: The Rally
NEW WINDSOR, NY — New York State Assemblyman and candidate for New York’s 18th Congressional District Colin Schmitt (R-New Windsor) yesterday, joined the Latinos for Schmitt coalition rally. The Latinos for Schmitt was sponsored by the American Latino Coalition in support of Assemblyman Colin Schmitt’s election to NY-18.
These American Latinos not only stood with Assemblyman Colin Schmitt today but pledged to do all in their power to ensure he is elected on November 8th.
Rubén Estrada, Chairman of the American Latino Coalition stated, “The American Latino Coalition proudly endorses Colin Schmitt in his race for New York’s 18th congressional district. We will get him to Washington where he is desperately needed to get our country moving in the right direction. Colin has a lot of work to do and we support him wholeheartedly in his pursuit of restoring checks and balances in DC.”
Supervisor George Serrano, Town of Wallkill stated, “Colin Schmitt is one of the first individuals I met when I started my campaign for Town Supervisor of Wallkill and he has been nothing but a true leader, a true American leader. I know that he is what is best for Orange County, what is best for New York, and what is best for this country. And with that, I am putting my full support behind Colin Schmitt.”
Assemblyman Colin J. Schmitt stated, “It is an honor for the Latinos for Schmitt coalition to launch as they now support me in our fight to win back New York’s 18th congressional district. The Latino community has been left behind by Joe Biden and House Democrats who appear to have zero focus on the issues that matter to them. I fought tirelessly to ensure we reopened our schools, led the charge for “Let Them Play” which resumed all interscholastic sports when the government held our kids back, and I continue to fight every day to repeal our disastrous “No Bail” laws in the state that put our communities at risk. Family, faith, and country—these are the priorities we collectively share and it is imperative that we elect common sense leaders to get our country back on track. When we take back the House and restore checks and balances to Washington, I will continue my fight for our local communities day in and day out. That is why I humbly ask for your support on November 8th and elect me to Congress in NY-18.”
The new NY-18 congressional district encompasses all of Orange County and parts of Dutchess and Ulster counties. Colin Schmitt is committed to public service. Colin is a Sergeant in the Army National Guard and Assemblyman for the 99th NYS Assembly District which includes parts of Orange and Rockland counties. Colin and his wife, Nikki, live in the Town of New Windsor with their rescue dog Quincy. On April 6, 2021, Colin announced his campaign for New York’s 18th Congressional District. As a lifelong Hudson Valley resident, Colin will stand up for local families and their values in the U.S. House of Representatives by fighting for lower taxes and more jobs and defending the region’s wonderful quality of life.
