Dear Cornwall-on-Hudson residents, neighbors, and friends:

 

So many exciting things going on in the Village to tell you about. It truly makes coming to work every day -- less work -- and much more a blessing.

 

We are moving forward on Donahue Farm purchase. New York State Supreme Court approved the purchase -- required when involved party is a 501(c)(3). The Attorney for the Village is currently reviewing all relevant documents and beginning the process to close; hopefully within two weeks.

On Tuesday, May 4th, I will host a “Village Mayors’ Roundtable” attended by all living former mayors. In attendance will be the Village’s 25th mayor (C. Obremski, 1979-1981), 26th (E. Moulton, 1981-2007), 27th (J. Gross, 2007-2011), and its 28th (B. Coyne, 2011-2021). Entirely too much “living history,” subject-matter-expertise, and invaluable knowledge about our wonderful Village, its origins, and the best path forward for me to miss this opportunity. I promise a photograph to memorialize the roundtable and will share with all.

Please know that the Village Board is engaged in an examination of all the facts related to the Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act (MRTA) set in place by the New York State legislature and enacted by the governor on March 31st. We are closely reviewing the summary of provisions and guidance provided by Orange County District Attorney’s Office and will deliberate over what Village may endeavor to opt out of, as permitted by law.

Don’t forget about the Donahue Memorial Park cleanup – the 10th annual Riverkeeper Riversweep event Saturday morning, May 1st, between 9:00am and 12:00pm. You may find more information, along with required pandemic precautions at sw[email protected].

We all remain in this together. Enjoy the weekend. Blessings to all.

Dear Cornwall-on-Hudson residents, neighbors, and friends:

 

So, the dust has finally settled following the election and the resultant April 5th swearings-in of Trustees Carnright and Braine, as well as your new mayor. Firstly, I think I can speak for Dave and Bill both, when I say that the three of us are humbled and honored and exceedingly excited to begin our terms and work on your behalf. We acknowledge our sacred responsibilities.

 

As your new mayor – the Village’s 29th – I would like to recognize the incredible legacy of service that Mayor Brendan Coyne has gifted our beloved community. His ten years as mayor, as well as years of service to the CCSD School Board, the Independence Day Committee, and Lions Club have left an indelibly positive mark on our Village. Thank you, sir.  

I’d be remiss in not acknowledging the incredible coalescing of Village employees that have served to guide and instruct me as I round out my 3rd week in office. Jeanne Mahoney, Dave Halvorsen, Mike Trainor, Steve Dixon, Bill Horton, and your staffs/crew – thank you, from the bottom of my heart. You have helped keep this Village running smoothly, in spite of me. 

Follow the Village website for upcoming Village Board meetings and public hearings. Stay tuned for exciting, upcoming news regarding the Donahue Farm property purchase and Memorial Day and Fourth of July event updates. We have a lot to be thankful for this year – no matter the pandemic hurdles.

You know how to reach me. Call me – and I WILL return the call. Stop at Village Hall when you see my Jeep in the parking lot or “gently accost” me around town when you see me out walking my dog or shopping/eating local.

We are all in this together. Enjoy the weekend. Blessings to all.
