Pat was born and raised in Kingston, New York, where his family has lived for five generations.
Pat’s dad ran a small business in Kingston, and Pat’s mom taught in Kingston public schools for nearly 30 years. Inspired by his family, Pat has always been committed to community service.
“I’ve felt called to serve my community and protect our country since I was young.”
After graduating from West Point and serving two tours in Iraq, Pat started a small business with two women to bring better technology to our troops overseas.
In just a few years, Pat grew the small business from 5 to 150 employees, over half of whom were veterans.
During this time, Pat also earned his Master’s Degree from Georgetown University and met his wife, Rebecca, who also grew up in the Hudson Valley.
“WHAT WE’RE LACKING IN WASHINGTON TODAY IS THE COURAGE TO STAND UP TO TRUMP.
THAT’S WHY I’M RUNNING.”
At a time when our nation is backsliding on our most fundamental ideals and values, Pat is running for Congress to take our country back.
He will use his proven track record of putting our country first — before party and before himself, to create an economy that works for everyone, to protect our environment, and will never stop fighting for all of us.
Pat and Rebecca live in Gardiner, New York, with their two adopted cats, Weetzie and Frankie.
