Dear Town of Poughkeepsie Residents,
I am pleased and honored to report that on November 7th you saw fit to elect me to another term as your Town Supervisor. I would like to extend my appreciation, not only to those who supported me, but to all of you who took the time to participate in the election process. Together we comprise the Town of Poughkeepsie and I will endeavor to ensure impartial representation for all residents.
We conducted a hard and honest campaign based on the simple notion of a voter assessment. That is, how effectively did residents feel past town issues and challenges had been met under my supervision. I am humbled, yet pleased that a majority of voters expressed confidence that the town is indeed best postured to face her current and future challenges under my supervision.
There are and will continue to be significant challenges facing our town. Budgets must be defended in the face of fiscal constraints, infrastructure needs will continue, but what must remain our foremost objective is to protect the taxpayers while maintaining the quality of life that makes the Town of Poughkeepsie so desirable a place to live, work, play and educate. Given the team we have assembled, I am optimistic about our future.
Thank you all for you confidence in me. My office is open to all residents, so please feel free to stop in with any concerns or just to say Hi.
I would also like to wish you a Joyous Holiday Season and a healthy and prosperous 2018.
Jon J. Baisley
Supervisor, Town of Poughkeepsie
