Jason West: The once and future Mayor of New Paltz

Jason West

Green Party Watch
The once and future Mayor
May 3, 2011

Jason West was Mayor of New Paltz New York from 2003 to 2007. An active member of the Green Party at that time, West was the first official in the United States to marry same-sex couples. He was arrested and charged with “solemnizing marriages without a license”. The charges were later dismissed.

After losing in a run at re-election West headed out west, to the University of California at Berkley to study urban planning, and later returned to New Paltz. This year he again ran for Mayor [West is an enrolled “Green” who ran on a local, line], and according to posts on his Facebook page, he has won that race, giving him a second but non-consecutive term.

West ran on the “Cooperative Party” ticket.
