CROTON-ON-HUDSON, N.Y. -- The Croton Democrats will be running a full slate in this year's municipal elections.
Trustee Brian Pugh will be running for mayor, while Amy Attias and Sherry Horowitz are runing for trustee.
Pugh, an attorney and lifelong resident of Croton, is serving his second term on the board.
“I look forward as Mayor to advancing the critical issues of environmental sustainability and transparency in government that I have dedicated myself to as a trustee," Pugh said. "We have much to protect, like the environment, and much to invest in and support, including our emergency responders and small businesses, all while safeguarding our finances."
Attias, a candidate for village trustee, is an attorney practicing civil rights and criminal law and a mother of three who raised her children in the Croton-Harmon school district.
“I am thrilled to run with Brian and Sherry for the village board and the chance to serve this community that I love,” said Attias. This is a time in history that demands action, like stepping into the forefront of dealing with climate change on the local level and actively supporting our immigrant communities."
Horowitz, is a longtime resident and small business owner in Croton who established and directs the Childrenspace preschool. Horowitz is a member of Resist Spectra and is also active in the Croton Climate Initiative, a grassroots organization pursuing sustainable environmental practices.
"I believe in the importance of strong and compassionate leadership and a local government that is truly responsive to the needs and wants of its citizens," Horowitz said. "This requires more and better communication to inform and connect people as well as opportunities for free and open dialogue on issues that impact our lives in both large and small ways. These opportunities need to be created and expanded so that we all feel that our cares and concerns are valid, are heard, and are addressed."
The candidates have also been endorsed by the Working Families, Independence and Women’s Equality parties.
