Chris Tague was elected to the New York State Assembly on April 24, 2018. His district consists of all of Greene and Schoharie Counties along with parts of Delaware, Columbia, Albany, Otsego and Ulster Counties. He previously was elected Schoharie Town Supervisor in 2015. As an Assemblyman, Chris will focus on key issues that affect his constituents, including: access to broadband internet, reducing taxes, providing support for local farmers, and fixing upstate’s failing infrastructure. He is also invested in many social issues such as the growing heroin epidemic, which he addressed during his time as Town Supervisor, including the protection and support of our firefighters, EMS, and first responders. Chris is the grandson of a World War II veteran, who instilled hardworking values on him from a young age. His political know-how and dedication to the community he serves will be wholly beneficial to the constituents of the 102nd District. Chris currently resides in Schoharie and has lived there all his life. Chris attended Schoharie Central School, graduating in 1987. He played seasonal sports, was involved in the Key Club, was Student Council President, and a member of the Future Farmers of America. After graduation, Chris started his own successful dairy farm business in 1987 growing from 25 cows to 75 cows upon selling the business in 1992. Soon thereafter, Chris joined Cobleskill Stone Products and he fell in love with the hard work of the laborer position. He was quickly promoted to foreman then again promoted to supervise the maintenance shops and trucking division. He earned the title of Superintendent of the quarry overseeing the entire operation and is currently the General Manager, with the responsibility of company-wide health and safety compliance, environmental compliance, political action, education and community outreach. Now Chris has left his 25 year career at Cobleskill Stone to be our full-time Assemblyman, working to update our failing infrastructure, bring larger broadband access to the region, fight the heroin and opioid epidemic, and fight for our values in Albany.
