Hello, hope you are all doing well.

It’s that time of the year when you see all the elections signs out.

In the Town of Cochecton, these are the people running:

 Gary Maas(R) is running for re-election as supervisor, for a two-year term.

Maryann Oumrim (R) is running for town clerk. She was the sole 2020 candidate to run for the unexpired term in 2021 (Hollye’s final year). Now she is running for a four-year term.

The Hon. Steven Sauer (D) and the Hon. Craig Fine (D) are running for re-election for two town justice positions. They serve a four-year term.

Dr. Paul Salzberg (D), Kambri Crews (D), Sean Nearing (R) and John Nober (R) are running for two open seats for town councilpersons. Dr. Paul Salzburg and Sean Nearing are up for re-election. It’s a four-year term.
