Three compete for two Tannersville board seats
Ted Remsnyder reports for Columbia-Greene Media that John Gallagher, Kimberly Thompson, and Susan Timpson are competing for two seats on the Tannersville Village Board in the March 15 election. Timpson is a Democrat who works for New York State, and previously served as a Tannersville Village Trustee. “I want to make sure that all voices are heard and that important issues are advanced,” Timpson said. “I think that my past elected experience in the Village of Tannersville and my professional experience will allow me to be an effective trustee and to meet the needs of our residents.” Thompson is a Republican, who is a counselor at a substance use disorder facility in Kingston and operates the Tannersville Laundromat. "I want to ensure the Village Water Department has what it needs to deliver safe and abundant water. I want to ensure that the Village Highway Department has what they need in order to keep pedestrian and vehicle traffic safely moving throughout the village. As our village grows the infrastructure needs to grow and improve as well," Thompson said. Gallagher is a Democrat, and a partner at a public affairs firm in New York City. "I think figuring out how we accommodate the tremendous amount of growth in the village, there’s some housing affordability issues for local people. I think figuring out how we create more workforce housing and protect workforce housing for local people is key," Gallagher said. Voting takes place 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., on March 15.
