Poughkeepsie Journal Endorses Didi Barrett

The Poughkeepsie Journal has endorsed Assemblymember Didi Barrett for reelection.
In its endorsement titled Barrett has earned chance for full term in Assembly the editorial board said 
... in the little time she has been in office, Barrett has displayed a “lead-by-example” attitude. This is indicative of her decision not to accept state reimbursement for travel expenses.
...she brings considerable strengths in her own right, including her profound understanding of the importance of agriculture to the region, in addition to an earnest collaborative approach to deal with complicated issues. 
Barrett....has methodically worked her way to a seat at the political table. It’s an intriguing and appealing notion to see what she can and will accomplish on behalf of the valley as an Assembly majority member endorsed by the governor. The district should give her that very chance.
