I would like to thank every Croton resident who showed up at the polls on Election Day or took advantage of Early Voting. Over the last two years, working with the Board of Trustees, local residents and the Village’s professional staff, we’ve achieved the following:
— Protected taxpayers by keeping the total property tax growth under 1% for both years combined.
— Prioritized sustainability by securing electricity from 100% renewable energy sources for all Croton households through Sustainable Westchester’s Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) Program.
— Added the first Electric Vehicle (EV) to the Village’s fleet with more EV and hybrid vehicles included in our capital plan.
— Installed public EV charging stations at the train station and at the Municipal Building.
— Supported the continued diversifying of our Police Department with the addition of our first bilingual police officer, first bilingual park ranger and only female officer.
— Created a Committee on Diversity & Inclusion to promote tolerance and advise the Village government on enhancing services for an increasingly diverse population.
— Lowered the speed limit to 25 MPH in key areas to protect pedestrians and drivers.
I am grateful for the hard work of the volunteers that came out to support Moving Croton Forward and for the sacrifices my family has made as part of this effort. I also deeply appreciate the endorsements of the Croton Democratic Committee, the Working Families Party, the Independence Party, the Westchester-Putnam Central Labor Body AFl-CIO, the Building Trades Council of Westchester & Putnam, and the Hudson Valley Stonewall Democrats.
It has truly been an honor to serve as the Mayor of my hometown. I will continue to do my best to serve the residents of the Village. If you ever need to reach out to me about any issue, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 914-374-3960.
