Rhinebeck Republicans will hold a party caucus at Village Hall at 10am Saturday, Sept. 13 to nominate a candidate for a one-year seat on the Rhinebeck Town Board.
The opening was created when the current supervisor, Elizabeth Spinzia, formerly a council person, moved into the supervisor’s position after the 2013 local elections, leaving two years left in her four-year term. Democrat Allan Scherr was appointed to the seat for 2014, and it is now up for election for the final year of the four-year term.
“Any Town of Rhinebeck enrolled Republican is welcome to seek the nomination” said Herman Tietjen, Town Republican Chair, in a GOP news release.
“Republicans have a proud tradition of service to the Town and Village of Rhinebeck and helped make this a destination community by preserving open space, maintaining environmental quality, providing a quality of life through thoughtful planning and fostering of diverse recreational opportunities for all ages,” Tietjen added. He urged all enrolled Republicans in both the town and village to attend the caucus.
Those interested should call Tietjen at his office, 845-876-7066, or e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
