Traudt’s actions don’t match words
Supervisor Tom Traudt campaigned that he “… is committed to retaining our ‘small town’ spirit and ensuring the integrity of Rhinebeck’s government … responsive to citizens concerns …” but proved that his platform was more rhetoric by proposing four major changes.
1) Reduction of town board meeting schedule. This idea may have merit, but the supervisor’s lack of communication, explanation or discussion left the public confused as to the thought process behind his decision.
