Ken Walsh: Why I Support Dan McNatty & Mark Aarons for Village Trustee

I support Croton United’s slate of Dan McNatty and Mark Aarons for Village Trustee. Here’s why:

Dan McNatty has worked in the financial industry for more than twenty years.  Most recently, Dan helps manage the Balance Sheet and Leverage Ratios for a large multi-national bank.  His knowledge and expertise will be a great asset to the board as we work to keep taxes low and levels of service high.  Dan has also given back to our village by volunteering his time with the Croton Harmon Education Foundation (CHEF), as an AYSO soccer coach and as a member of the Financial Sustainability Committee. Dan will offer sensible solutions to keep our debt levels and long-term financial commitments in check.

Mark Aarons is a VP-Deputy General Counsel for a regional retail chain.  Mark is instrumental making the retail stores be environmentally friendly and sustainable by putting solar panels on the roof and switching to energy efficient lighting.  Mark's legal and regulatory experience will help Croton encourage smart business development and keep our legal bills low.  In college, Mark was involved in the creation of NYPIRG, the nationally renowned environmental and social justice advocacy group.  Mark, a twenty-year resident of Croton, has also given a lot back to our village.   Mark was a member of the Croton Planning Board for five years.  Mark has also been a Cub Scout den leader, baseball and football coach, and a member of the Croton-Harmon school district transportation committee.

Both Dan and Mark are committed to Croton United’s nonpartisan approach to village government and share our commitment to do what’s best for all village residents.

For all of these reasons I hope that you vote for Dan and Mark on November 8th.  They are on the bottom row of the ballot—however they’re the top choice to represent us as Village Trustee.
