Letters: Candidates for Village Trustee

I would like to share my support for Stephanie Hawkins and Bruce Campbell in the upcoming Village Board of Trustees elections.

Stephanie Hawkins has proven her commitment to the community. As a founding member of the Cold Spring Film Society, a member of the Depot Theatre, the Special Board and the Recreation Committee, she has a proven track record of working well with others as she gives back to the community she loves. Stephanie’s interpersonal style combined with her professional experience in contracts and finance will be a valuable asset to the Village Board as they address the complicated challenges ahead.

Serving as deputy mayor, Bruce Campbell has the much needed knowledge and experience of the day-to-day operations of the village. He has also proven his commitment to our community serving on the Village Board, School Board and Recreation Committee. I feel that Hawkins and Campbell offer the Village Board the best individual skills, of all the candidates, while maintaining continuity in the operation of our village government, and I look forward to casting my vote for them on March 19.

Cold Spring is fortunate that Stephanie Hawkins is running for village trustee! Stephanie is committed to responsible development that will grow this village for the future while retaining its unique character. Importantly, she values the Comprehensive Plan, which reflects the vision of hundreds of residents and business owners who participated in its creation. I believe Stephanie will work to ensure that the plan is actually implemented.

Stephanie is also a force for positive civic dialogue. Folks who have worked with her on the Special Board, where Stephanie has volunteered much time and expertise, know that she believes in encouraging communication between the village boards, staff and volunteers. She understands that strong community relations make for a stronger community. Fiscal management is also a priority for Stephanie, and her professional experience in this area will be a great asset to the village and its taxpayers.

Please join me in voting for Stephanie Hawkins for trustee.

For the last year I have worked with Bruce Campbell on the Recreation Commission. What he brings to the table is his thoughtfulness, experience and wealth of knowledge about the village. I support Bruce Campbell for trustee because of his passion and concern for the village and urge residents to vote for him.
