Rowzee challenging McHugh in Coeymans Town Supervisor race

Nov 02, 2021 5:45 am

Melanie Lekocevic is reporting for Capital Region Independent Media two candidates will face off in the November 2 general election for Coeymans Town Supervisor: Incumbent Republican George McHugh and Democrat Cindy Rowzee. McHugh, 56, is a lifelong resident of Albany County. He is an attorney by profession and is seeking his second consecutive term. He previously served as town supervisor from 2000 to 2001. McHugh served in the U.S. Army for 30 years and retired honorably with the rank of colonel in 2017. He is running on the Republican and Conservative lines. McHugh believes the top issue facing the town of Coeymans "continues to be striking the proper balance between being a great place to work and also being a great place to live and raise a family. Just like in our own personal lives, Coeymans must strike a balance. The balance in this case being between developing industry and job creation, while at the same time maintaining a healthy and safe environment so that our children and young people choose Coeymans as a place to live and raise families." Rowzee, 45, has lived in the county for more than 10 years and currently resides in the village of Ravena. She has served as the Town of Coeymans Clerk for nearly four years; her term expires December 31. Rowzee is running on the Democratic and Working Families lines. Rowzee believes the top issue facing the community is the lack of economic development. "If we are able to bring in more small businesses many other problems will fix themselves. More businesses will bring less vacant buildings, less crime, a more beautiful 9W corridor and Main Street, more sales tax revenue, more property tax revenue, more residents and an improved quality of life," she said.
