Town Supervisor Sue T. Crane Candidate for Re-election

“For almost fourteen years I have been privileged to serve the citizens of Red Hook as an elected official, first as Councilwoman and more recently as Town Supervisor. I would be honored to serve as Town Supervisor for another four years.”

“I have enjoyed and developed diverse relationships throughout our community and region. As the Town’s chief administrator, the past four years have provided me unique opportunities to work cooperatively with town board members, employees, staff, andvolunteers, as well as officials from other municipalities, including local, county and state. Together we continue to develop strategies to provide programs, services and infrastructure that
will serve residents for generations. During my term as Town Supervisor, I have obtained the confidence of local residents who realize I have a strong work ethic and am committed to honesty, civility, and fairness. I appreciate and am ever mindful of this place we all call home. In public office, much can be gained by being a sensitive servant to those who call on us for help.
Residents of Red Hook are aware I am accessible and willing to listen.”

“Recent years have been financially challenging to us all. Coping with these challenges will require a person who is experienced, balanced and demonstrates caring strength. Government officials are called upon to be responsible and creative; they also must be willing to take a ‘ leap of faith’. Sometimes that can mean accepting help from volunteers who offer their experience, talent and wisdom. Red Hook is blessed with friends and neighbors who regularly come forward to assist in countless ways and with unexpected generosity.”

“Much has been achieved: affordable senior housing, expansion of our recreation park, safe sidewalks, farmland and historic preservation, upgrades of town equipment and infrastructure including town hall and roadways, investment in sustainable technology and programs, a community preservation fund program, collaboration with local municipalities, partnerships with local land trusts and creation of improved communication across generations, interests, education and cultures. Still to be achieved is the completion of zoning code updates and new construction of a much-needed highway garage. Together, we still have much to accomplish.”

“A strong, effective elected official must build relationships that are founded on trust. Americans of all ages long for leaders who are respected and dependable. I am a registered Republican who, for fourteen years, has enjoyed the respect and friendship of members of the Republican, Democratic, Independence, and Conservative Parties. I invite the support of all who believe that local public servants need not be constrained by labels. I want
to continue serving Red Hook citizens as their Town Supervisor and will be honored to receive support for reelection.”
