RHINEBECK, N.Y. -- As national presidential campaigns intensify, local candidates Scott Cruikshank, Sean Kemp, and Sheri Monaco announced Monday the establishment of a brand new party, “Rhinebeck Together”.
Cruikshank, Kemp, and Monaco are running for the Rhinebeck Village Board. Cruikshank said they wanted their platform to show they wanted to put Rhinebeck first.
“We wanted our ticket and platform to represent the heart of what we all need to focus on as we move the village forward," Cruikshank said. "Rhinebeck Together states exactly what we most want to represent."
The candidates have been endorsed by the Rhinebeck Republican Committee.
“They are the best candidates the community could ask for,” said Bruce Washburn, chairman of the Rhinebeck Republican Committee.
Monaco said her slate is fully vested in the success of Rhinebeck.
“We honor the past, celebrate where we are today, but we are focused on working tirelessly to build the foundation for the future of this wonderful village,”, said Monaco.
Kemp said the three candidates bring a wealth of experience and expertise to the race.
We are committed to the fiscal responsibility that taxpayers deserve, and are deeply committed to providing our residents with effective leadership," Kemp said.
