Michael R. Coleman: ‘The straight edge outsider candidate’ in the Tuxedo Park Village election

| 16 May 2021 | 03:14

    My goal is to make Mayor McFadden the best mayor Tuxedo Park has ever had. He cannot do this on his own; he will need help from Trustees like me. If Mayor McFadden succeeds, the whole Village of Tuxedo Park will succeed.

    Hello, my name is Michael Coleman, I am 35 years old and I’m running for Village Trustee on June 15. I am very enthusiastic about representing you and having your voice heard in the next Village Administration.

    I have lived in Tuxedo Park for almost five years now and yes, I am a “renter.”

    You see, I have been carefully saving my money, so that in 2-3 years’ time I will be able to put a sizable down-payment on a moderate home, and start a family of my own here in Tuxedo Park.

    It is therefore very important to me that Tuxedo Park is taken care of in the long run, as it will be the home to, not only myself, but more importantly to my children as well.

    Those of you who already are familiar with me, you know me as reliable, friendly and always willing to lend a helping hand. As a youngster I was a faculty-brat, having grown up on the campus of West Point. Dad was the Chief Academic Counsellor of the Academy. As I am very straight-forward and truthful with people, I consider myself the “straight edge” outsider candidate in this election.

    I am moderate in my views, respectful of everyone, committed to diversity and inclusion, welcoming to all residents.

    In this manner we can tap into the energy and creativity of everyone who lives in the Park today, and in a positive way, allow our very talented pool of residents help us find solutions to pressing issues.

    I appreciate your support.
