Low-Hogan Kicks Off Campaign for Rockland Legislator

Orangetown councilwoman seeks seat for 17th district

Friends and supporters of Nancy Low-Hogan gathered at the Commissary restaurant in Tappan Monday evening to kick off her , 17th district.

The event—a fundraiser that attracted several dozen residents at $75 per person—spotlighted Democrat Low-Hogan's goals.

"What this is all about is quality of life in Rockland County," Low-Hogan said. "It's about the environment, our water, our air, our land. It's about maintaining the critical services the county provides for the people."

Low-Hogan also noted fiscal responsibility is a major tenant of her platform.

"It's about keeping an eye on the cost of government so it doesn't become so overwhelming that people cannot survive," she said.

Connie Coker currently holds the office of legislator for the 17th district, but is not seeking re-election. Coker noted earlier this year she will relinquish her post to focus on environmental activism.

Low-Hogan's term as councilwoman began January 1, 2008 and runs until December 31, 2011. She also serves on South Nyack Planning Board; she has lived in South Nyack for thirteen years. Low-Hogan holds a Ph.D. in Higher Education from New York University, a Master's from Seton Hall University and a Bachelor's degree in Criminal Justice from the University of Delaware. She has worked in higher education for 30 years, and ran for the New York State Senate in 2006.

Cooker said many of the same things and now our credit rating was lowered, taxes are going up again and we are trying to sell our assets, the nursing home. The real problem is the cost of the health care and pensions and Low and lower Hogan never even mentioned it. Notice they did not show the faces in the photo because 90% of those in attendance are the same political hacks that contribute to one another.
