There is not enough space to list all of the achievements of Supervisor Jay Schneiderman and Town Board member John Bouvier. Their robust track record easily supports their campaign for reelection.
The short list of their achievements includes but is far from limited to: excellent credit rating by Moody’s Rating Report; significant drop in the town’s crime rate; creation of the Opioid Task Force; elimination of developer-driven planned development districts; execution of a multi-faceted water quality improvement project; construction of affordable housing and passage of accessory apartment law; designation as a “Smart Climate” community by New York State; and infrastructure improvements through a well-directed capital improvement budget, judicious board appointments and, with their inter-governmental colleagues, the new commuter rail service.
One would be hard-pressed to find a municipal government that better identifies problems and methodically offers solutions while considering all stakeholders’ concerns. To be sure, and they would say the same: More work needs to be done. Successes, yes, but more goals still to be met.
Adding small-business owner and community leader Craig Catalanotto to the Town Board will increase the potential to meet shared town goals. Craig’s exemplary work on his local citizens advisory council, and the Speonk-Remsenburg Civic Association Board, plus his work on the Community Preservation Fund Advisory Board indicates a well-grounded experience in the dynamics of good government and an appreciation of the value of citizen input that should serve him and the town well as a member of the Town Board.
