Croton Democrats Seek Board Candidates for March '07 Election

November 21, 2006

The Croton Democratic Committee is seeking candidates to run for the offices of Mayor and Trustee in the March 2007 village elections. In the March elections, voters will choose a mayor, currently Gregory Schmidt, and two trustee positions now held by Thomas Brennan and Leo Wiegman. Nominees will be selected at the annual village Democratic Caucus to be held in late January. Interested individuals should submit a resume and statement of interest to John Harbeson by mail (5 Valley Trail, Croton-on-Hudson, New York 10520) or email (jwharbeson AT aol DOT com) by December 1, 2006.

As a member of the Croton Democratic Nominating Committee i am hoping that the many high qualified candidates who do agree with the Croton Democrat vision will step up to the plate and offer themselves to be nominee’s. Due to the amazement of many of our great residents in Croton, there are actaully alot of more if not more important issues than the 1A Croton Point Avenue saga. Kevin Davis

The worst thing that could happen to Croton would be a 24/7, unregulated trash station in our village.

I hope others will join me in my determination NOT to vote for any candidate who refuses to sit down and talk to the owners of 1A Croton Point Avenue. Expensive litigation has gotten out of hand. It is entirely possible, if not probable, that stubborn unwillingness to negotiate with opposing parties could result in a disaster for our village. (Not unlike the “stay the course” in Iraq creed of the White House.)

I intend to ask for a declaration from both republican and democratic candidates. Only those attempting to reach a negotiated settlement deserve our vote.
