After an eleven-year hiatus, former two-term New Paltz Town Supervisor (1996-2000) Susan Zimet is vying to get her old job back. After losing a bid for a third term, Zimet later went on to serve as a County Legislator (D-New Paltz) for eight years. She has received the Democratic endorsement and the Republican endorsement, although those caucus results are currently being challenged in court.
Vying for her fourth two-year term as New Paltz Town Supervisor is Toni Hokanson. Although Hokanson lost a bid to get the Democratic and Republican nomination, she has received the Working Families nomination and will appear on that line during the November elections.
