Croton Dems Endorse Trustee Candidates

The Croton-on-Hudson Democratic Party is endorsing Ann Gallelli and Andy Levitt.

The Croton Democrats, at a special meeting, voted to endorse Ann Gallelli and Andy Levitt as their candidates to run for two open Village Trustee positions in the November 2012 elections.  

Ms. Gallelli, who currently serves as a Trustee, is seeking re-election.  “I have enjoyed serving the Village as Trustee.  The Village has seen many positive changes over recent years. I believe the future of the Village is very positive in terms of its overall attractiveness, commercial activity, recreational enhancements and its strong financial foundation. I am confident that we can keep moving forward in all these areas while maintaining our low tax record.”  Mr. Levitt lives in the Harmon section of town, is a lawyer, and has one small child in the Croton school system and another who will be entering in the fall.  “I think the Mayor and the Democratic Trustees have done a wonderful job of prudently managing the Village’s finances, and I share their vision of what we need to do going forward.  I hope to be able to join them in working toward making our business districts more vibrant, maintaining and improving our critical infrastructure, and continuing to maintain services while keeping property taxes under control. ”

Harris Rubinroit is very outspoken but not too creative. I've seen this same post at least 6 times--even attached to an article about a school board race! If Mr. Davis actually knew what the budget process entails (which he should if he has attended so many board meetings) he would be aware that the proposed budget is submitted by the Village Manager to the Village Board. The trustees must then pare it down to an acceptable size for to retain services and keep taxpayers from over paying. Ann Gallelli and the current VB got the proposed budget down over 5% last year.
