Croton-on-Hudson, NY – At its monthly meeting held Thursday, June 6, 2013, the Croton Democratic Committee voted unanimously to endorse incumbent Mayor, Leo Wiegman and Trustee Casey Raskob, for reelection, and backed Andy Levitt to fill the seat currently held by Trustee Ian Murtaugh, who will not be running again in November.
“The Croton Democratic Committee is very pleased to endorse such a strong slate of candidates including two incumbents, Leo and Casey, with outstanding records of accomplishment on behalf of the village and Andy, a highly qualified candidate with a deep and abiding commitment to service in our community,” stated Paul Rolnick, Democratic Chair.
Mayor Wiegman responded, “It is a great honor to serve the people of Croton. The creativity and drive of so many people in Croton is an inspiration to those of us in public life and pushes us to do our best and remain open to new ideas and new ways of doing things. For example, the 9-11 Memorial, the Duck Pond restoration and our Community Gardens were all ideas from residents. It is our job as elected officials to invite such ideas and help the best ideas become reality.”
Casey Raskob, “I am pleased to have the opportunity to run for a second term on the Village Board. Croton is truly a special place, and I intend, with the rest of the Board, to work to keep it that way. Our community is full of great ideas and inventive people. Working together we can preserve what we have and improve for the future.
Andy Levitt, “I’m honored and humbled to receive the Croton Democrats’ endorsement and to run alongside Mayor Wiegman and Trustee Raskob. If I’m elected Village Trustee, I will do my utmost to continue the Village Board’s outstanding work on behalf of our community while applying my independent judgment to the important issues facing Croton.
The election will take place November 5, 2013.
