Democrat Betsy Kraat is challenging Republican State Assemblyman Chris Tague in the 102nd District in November’s election. The district stretches from the Catskills to the Hudson Valley to the Leatherstocking region. Tague has represented the 102nd district since winning a special election in 2018.
Kraat, a social worker and Ulster County resident, wants to bring her experience with public housing and social programs to Albany. WAMC's Lucas Willard asked Kraat about what she would bring to a state government controlled by Democrats.
