— “The town isn’t even the same place it was 12 years ago. We have new sidewalks, streetlights and park benches downtown; the town looks great,” she said. “We always need something to attract tourists and we need to keep a pride in the community for local residents.”

Moses is quick to point out the town board and citizens of Schroon deserve the credit for the successes of her tenure.

“You can’t do anything without the support of the board and community,” Moses said. “Our state legislators have been very generous over the years in securing grants. We’ve had a lot of help.

“It’s been a wonderful, cooperative effort,” she added. “We’ve had a few disagreements along the way, that’s a healthy thing, but I’m proud of the cooperative effort.”

Roger Friedman, town councilman and deputy supervisor, said Moses deserves most of the credit for the work done during her tenure.

“When Cathy came on board we were beginning the new municipal water system,” Friedman said. “Since that time the following is a short list of what his been done under her administration — a Schroon Lake Association partnership with the town to preserve the lake; a new wastewater treatment plant and much work on the collection system with $4 million in grant money; airport upgrades; a new ski tow; new sidewalks; a new highway garage; creation of the beautification committee; establishing the revolving loan fund; the development of the tourism destination blueprint; the Schroon watershed master plan; and t purchase of old firehouse for new town library.”

He went on to list many improvements and additions to the town park.

“For me Cathy has been a friend for many, many years, from way back during our days at Schroon Lake Central,” Friedman said. “Cathy has many outstanding qualities —most of all she is honest and fair. While being supervisor of a town is a political function, Cathy is not a politician and has never suffered from an over inflated ego. Cathy has her beliefs and convictions, but she has never been reluctant to listen and learn. Cathy, while not a dynamic leader, has a natural sense to go towards what is correct for the town. She is a team player and really doesn’t have a mean bone in her body.”
