Hi, I’m John Schoonmaker. I was raised in Saugerties and graduated from the high school in 2010. I attended Siena College for 4 years, majoring in biology. I decided to run for town board because I want to give back to the community that helped shape me into the person I am today.
If elected I will:
- Hold biweekly office hours to meet with residents and discuss their concerns/ideas
- Work to form a coalition of neighboring towns and environmental groups to clean up the Esopus Creek of invasive species
- Look into the potential merging of town and village services, similar to the police merger, to save residents on taxes
- Attract small businesses to the town, such as bringing a movie studio on Kings Highway
Vote November 7 – John Schoonmaker – Saugerties Town Board candidate
