Moses wins

SCHROON LAKE - Schroon voters have decided they like what they know, re-electing Republican Cathy Moses as town supervisor with 67 percent of the vote.

"It's a huge sigh of relief," she said after hearing the results.

Moses received 506 votes, while Democratic challenger Mark Whitney garnered 248 votes.

Moses brings her years of experience as supervisor and her record of results. Moses has worked to secure grant money to assist with town maintenance and restoration projects.

The continuation of these efforts is the first item on the agenda as Moses returns to work as supervisor. The upcoming projects will be expansion of the town hall, improved internet access and improvements to the town-owned golf course and town buildings.

"I think we can be very proud of where we live," Moses said. "It has been a lot of hard work, but as I ride around town I feel a tremendous sense of pride."

Whitney, an incumbent town board member, was gracious in defeat.

"I'd would like to congratulate Cathy Moses on her successful campaign and recognize her service to this community," he said. "I look forward to continue working as her colleague on the town board over the next two years as we complete the projects she has begun.

"Most of all, I am thankful for the support I received today from all over our community and I am honored to continue to actively serve as an independent local representative," Whitney added. "I look forward to the 2011 election for supervisor of the town of Schroon and the next opportunity to represent our community on the Essex County board."

Roger Friedman received 547 votes and was re-elected to the town board. He'll be joined by Meg Wood, who got 403 votes. Bruce Caza had 214 votes.

Justice Jean Strothenke, 508 votes, and assessor Thomas Erikson, 452 votes, both incumbents, and ran unopposed.
