Appointee for Town Board Position and a few, more pleasant items

Hi all. Here’s a few items for your consideration.

Closed-Door Politics at Work Again

I just wanted to let everyone know about a special Town Board Meeting that is to be held Monday, June 29 at 7pm at the Town Hall.

The only item on the agenda is to enter into executive session to interview possible appointee to the Town Board.

None of the individuals that I know have expressed interest in running in November have been called in for an interview, and the way the resolution is written, it seems THEY ARE ONLY INTERVIEWING ONE CANDIDATE. I have heard a rumor that the individual is the wife of the planning board chair. If this is the case, two individuals on both the Planning Board and the Town Board will have spouses serving on the other board, and there will again be no representation from the northern part of town anywhere.

That doesn’t exactly sound like a fair process to me.

Please attend this meeting to express your frustration at the extremely closed-door administration which we still seem to be dealing with, despite many promises of transparency, openness, and inclusion.

Some of the concepts to rejuvenate Tuxedo are finally coming to fruition! We’d love to have your involvement: this Saturday at 9am at the Tuxedo Train Station is our first community meeting and the following Saturday, we are looking for volunteers to help provide information to the trail-goers visiting our town.

See below for details. We need your help to situate Tuxedo as NYC’s “first stop in the country”.

Volunteers Needed:  Hikers Kiosk at Tuxedo Farmers Market

Hikers from Tuxedo and the NJ/NY Trail Conference are planning to have a Kiosk at the Tuxedo Farmer’s Market June 20-October from 8:30-Noon. The purpose is to help hikers find the best trails in Sterling Forest State Park and Harriman State Park. Many hikers stop in at the Farmer’s Market to buy food.  Often these hikers have questions. We will have Trail Conference materials including maps for purchase.

We would like to encourage hikers to return to Tuxedo many times and to stop at our food establishments after hiking. Many hikers come to Tuxedo by train or bus to start their hikes. Others use the parking lots in town.

Needed – a 2 ft x 4 ft folding table to use for our Trail Conference Materials

Volunteers are needed to staff our Kiosk.  If you can help, email and the link to SignUpGenius will be sent to you.

Any questions email or call Caroline Lavanhar 351-2474
