NEW WINDSOR — Three current and former elected Democrat officials have announced their endorsement of Tom Basile to succeed retiring state Sen. Bill Larkin in the 39th District.

Democrat Monroe Town Councilman Rick Colon: “Tom Basile cares about our community. He’ll work to ensure the town has the resources it needs to provide residents with quality services at an affordable cost. Tom Basile will be a true partner for us in the State Senate and stand up to out-of-touch New York City politicians.”

Former Democrat Monroe Mayor Jim Purcell: “It's time we put all politics aside and think about what is best for our communities - growing the economy, property tax reform, and sustainable development. Tom Basile is an honest, smart, experienced, family man and leader we can be proud of. He puts people over politics and believes in service above self. I'm proud to call him a friend and trust that we can count on him to fight against the radical politics of NYC-backed politicians. Tom Basile will be a Senator for all of us.”

Basile has also been endorsed by current Monroe Mayor Neil Dwyer, a Republican.

Former Democrat Stony Point Town Supervisor Geoff Finn also offered his support as well.

Basile, who is running on the Republican, Independence and Conservative lines in November, expressed his appreciation:

“The issues we face aren’t about Republicans or Democrats. All of us are paying these taxes and struggling to achieve financial stability in the face of more spending driven by NYC political bosses. We can’t afford more government."
