Democrat, Republican face off for supervisor

Schroon recently received a $4.4 million federal stimulus grant to complete the second phase of its sewer project. That will allow new sewer lines along Main Street and upgrades at the sewage treatment plant.

Other grants have been obtained for renovation of the Boathouse Theatre, the town bandstand, the pier, milfoil eradication, the airport, housing rehabilitation, street lighting and parks restoration.

Moses believes Schroon's infrastructure is sound for years to come.

Now she has turned her attention to the expansion of the town hall, which will allow greater space for town offices, court and the library. That project will also be completed with grant money, she said, with no cost to local taxpayers.

Moses also is working to improve internet access in the community, improve the town-owned golf course and to make town buildings more energy efficient.

Moses was born in Tahawus, moving to North Hudson at age 13. She is a graduate of Schroon Lake Central School and Our Lady of Victory business school. She worked several years for the New York State before becoming clerk to Kelly.

"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."

Mark Whitney offersbusiness background

SCHROON LAKE - Mark Whitney thinks it's time for a change in the town of Schroon. So, he's running for supervisor.

"The current supervisor has been here for 10 years and has a certain way of doing things," Whitney said. "I have different management skills and philosophy. I want to work for the people of Schroon."

Whitney, currently a member of the Schroon town board, is running on the Democrat and Schroon Lake Party tickets in the November general election against incumbent Republican Cathy Moses.
