December 6, 2021 / Mahopac, NY – This week, former Putnam County Clerk, Hon. Dennis Sant, endorsed Assemblyman Kevin Byrne’s candidacy for Putnam County Executive.
“First let me congratulate our current County Executive Mary Ellen O’Dell for the excellent way she has led this county through very difficult times, a job well done and she will be greatly missed.
During my tenure as Putnam County Clerk, I stood against a storm of media protests for refusing to give out pistol permit holders’ personal information. I believed that this would have caused an unwarranted invasion of our citizen’s personal privacies and would have placed them in harm’s way. We need a candidate like Kevin to protect our 2nd Amendment rights as well as our privacy. He is a law-and-order candidate with a background as a first responder and has strong conservative family values. This is why I wholeheartedly endorse Assemblyman Kevin Byrne for Putnam County Executive!”
Sant continued “As a father, Kevin stands with the parents of Putnam County that want to have a say in their children’s education. He wants our children to be taught how to think, not what to think. Kevin strongly supports that all school board members are public servants and accountable to the parents who have voted them into office.
Kevin Byrne enjoys the utmost respect and admiration from law enforcement, his colleagues, and elected officials alike. He is a true gentleman with unparalleled experience and expertise.
I am proud to call Kevin Byrne my friend and enthusiastically endorse him for our next Putnam County Executive!”
