we, STONY POINT DEMOCRATS, will work to :
REVITALIZE OUR TOWN AND INCREASE THE TAX BASE, BY :
Developing our waterfront in a planned and sustainable way,
Encouraging small business opportunities,
Building on our historic roots and sharing our connection to the Harriman and Palisades Park system.
Working to increase the transparency of town government and improve services to our community.
REDUCE THE TAX BURDEN, BY :
Electing Democratic officials willing and able to provide state support for reducing Stony Point's $200 million Mirant tax burden. This cannot be done by the taxpayers of North Rockland alone and will require Democratic control of the State Senate, the continued support of the Democratic Assembly, and the signature of a Democratic Governor.
HONOR OUR ENVIRONMENT, BY :
Continuing the opposition of projects such as NEW PLANET ENERGY,
Refusing zone changes such as the proposition to change 39 parcels of light industry (L1, L2 Zones) into Heavy Industrial "Green Zones".
Developing a viable waterfront downtown and a sustainable future for Stony Point.
BUILD PRIDE IN OUR COMMUNITY, BY :
Supporting our schools, first responders, libraries, and encouraging civic engagement, increasing business and recreational opportunities, as well as all supporting all generations of Stony Pointers, from new families to the elderly.
cooperation is better than conflict.
unity is better than division.
empowerment is better than resentment.
bridges are better than walls.
come join us in our mission
to create a financially stable and sustainable Stony Point.
Meet OUR CHAIR,
Welcome to the Stony Point Democratic Committee!
We are joined together by a commitment to our community and our country. We take pride in our diversity. We honor our different backgrounds and protect the rights of individual choice. We encourage civic engagement, and value the opportunity for people to work and get ahead. We protect our families by seeking to provide access to healthcare, a great education for our children, and a safe environment where people can grow and be fulfilled.
Stony Point is our home and we are resolved to make it a sustainable community now, and into the future. We believe that civic engagement in governance is a positive force in our lives. We seek to protect necessary services, security, and opportunities to enjoy our community.
We realize that a two-party system is necessary for providing checks and balances, especially on a local level. We invite you to join our efforts to revitalize democracy in Stony Point, Rockland County, New York State, and the United States of America.
Please join the Stony Point Democrats as we work for democracy and a sustainable future for Stony Point.
