    Dear Tuxedo neighbors,

    My name is Michele Lindsay and I’m seeking re-election as Town Councilwoman for Tuxedo. My experience as a VP at JPMorgan in municipal finance and four years on the Board has prepared me to lead our town forward.

    In my first term I have built relationships with local, county and state officials in order to bring taxpayer dollars back to Tuxedo.

    This year I worked to secure a County Tourism grant as well as a $100,000 allocation through Senator Metzger 's office that will pay for a new roof on Town Hall, reducing the burden on local taxpayers.

    I lead our Climate Smart task force that will bring 21st century technology to reduce energy costs for taxpayers and contribute to climate mitigation.

    As Economic Development liaison, I am working with County officials and a dedicated group of 35 to attract businesses to Tuxedo.

    I have been endorsed by Orange County Democratic Women.

    It has been an honor to serve on the Tuxedo Town Board with Ken English. Ken is committed to keeping taxes low so seniors can remain in their homes and, with his commitment to enabling economic development, to attracting new families to our community and schools. Ken and I have spearheaded monthly study circles at our library with the goal of involving the public in local government. Ken thoroughly studies the complex issues facing our town and works effectively toward solutions with our consultants, Town officials and Board members.

    Our fellow candidate Maria May's involvement with the Suffern School District advocacy board, working in a nonpartisan manner with local and state officials, has given her the experience we need to work cooperatively across party lines. As an educator she will strengthen our Board.

    Our Democratic and Independence Party slate is dedicated to uniting the diverse neighborhoods that comprise our beloved community. Together we can build a better future for residents and businesses.

    Sincerely,

    Michele Lindsay

    Town of Tuxedo Councilwoman
