I stay attentive to concerns people share with me, whether at an "official" forum, such as a Town Board Meeting, or during a more ‘"casual" encounter, for instance at a local shopping place or sporting event. If something is important to my constituents, it’s important to me. In a very short time a substantial portion of my community will be affected by the closure of Indian Point Power Plant. It is imperative to work on solutions that will lessen the varied anticipated impacts.
Cortlandt is a leader in providing housing that reflects a diversity of lifestyles. From single family homes to condominiums; from “retirement” settings to “affordable” housing, most options are available in the Town of Cortlandt.
