Croton United (CU) is pleased to announce the nomination of Dr. Gregory Schmidt for Mayor and Bob Anderson and Kenneth Walsh as its candidates for the two open trustee seats on the Croton Village Board. CU is a non partisan organization dedicated to returning honesty, integrity, and efficiency to government in Croton.
“Croton United is very proud to have such an outstanding trio as Greg, Bob, and Ken as our candidates,” said CU chair Roseann Schuyler, “and we’re proud to offer the voters of Croton a choice of three individuals with diverse strengths and experience, as well as great honesty and integrity in this November’s election. We’re looking forward to introducing our candidates to the community, and to presenting our vision for the future of the village.
Bob Anderson has been a Croton resident for forty years. He and his wife, Leslie, raised their son in Croton. After graduating from SUNY, New Paltz, in 1972 with BS and MS degrees in education and psychology, Bob taught second and third grade in the Hendrick Hudson School District, as well as special needs children at Northern Westchester BOCES.
A man of many talents, Bob left teaching to spend several years as a tennis professional at clubs around Westchester. In 1983, he joined IBM Research as a designer of laboratory and office space. He later served as an executive assistant to the VP of Science and Technology, and finished his career as a technical recruiter, retiring in 2002.
For the past dozen years, Bob has been a dedicated volunteer with the Croton Caring Committee, providing medical transportation to our senior citizens and delivering holiday baskets of food to disadvantaged families in Croton.
“I am running for trustee because I believe the current village board has forgotten what public service means.” Bob said. “The lack of fiscal responsibility, transparency, and overall lack of integrity became my tipping point. The feeling of entitlement exhibited by the mayor is appalling and if nothing else I hope to make Croton voters aware of what is going on with our Village government.”
Dr. Gregory Schmidt's bio is forthcoming.
Kenneth Walsh's bio is forthcoming.
