The organizations and individuals below proudly support Karen Smythe's 2020 campaign for State Senate
Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Kamala Harris
US Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer
“If you want something done, ask a busy woman. Karen knows the challenges of working a full-time job while raising a family. No one has been hit harder by COVID-19 than working moms, and Karen will listen, learn, and do what it takes to help women, kids, and families across the Hudson Valley rebound from the worst economic and health crisis of our lifetime. As the former head of her family’s union construction business, she has years of experience working with a variety of stakeholders to get the job done. Karen is not afraid to do the hard work or undertake the big problems that are going to take innovative thinking to untangle.”
NY Senator Kirsten Gillibrand
“As the former head of her family’s Poughkeepsie-based union construction company, Karen Smythe has proven herself as a businessperson and a job creator. Make no mistake, we all have a hard road ahead of us as we rebuild our economy after Covid, but leaders like Karen have the grit and know-how to help the Hudson Valley ‘build back better’.
I look forward to working with Karen in the New York State Senate.”
