Letter to the Editor: A WORD FROM GARY BASSETT, RHINEBECK VILLAGE TRUSTEE

 

I am running for Mayor because Rhinebeck deserves better leadership, better roads, a better water system, stronger working relationships within Village, and with the Town, County and State.

Right now our drinking water supply and public safety are threatened by the plan to anchor oil barges off

Rhinecliff. Already towns and villages all along the Hudson have come together to oppose this plan, yet current leadership has done nothing to address this threat.

Our streets require a better on-going program of repair. Experience shows that on these and other issues, we can’t go at it alone and need to work with the people and resources around us.

As a corporate manager and 1st assistant chief at Rhinecliff Fire and Rescue, I coordinated the work of large groups of people and completed projects on budget. As Village Trustee, I focused on rebuilding our water system and the real impacts of climate change on village property and shared computer systems with the Town.

As your Mayor I will raise up your voice and together we will build relationships and face the issues to bring Rhinebeck ever forward.
