In January, 2015, the Rhinebeck Village Democratic Caucus voted to nominate a full slate of candidates for re-election. No other candidates presented themselves. All are incumbents, and were all nominated by both the Democratic and Republican parties, and all will appear on both the Democratic and Republican lines in our upcoming Village elections:
Heath Tortarella (I) for Mayor
Heinz Sauer (D) for Trustee
Howard Traudt (I) for Trustee
Scott Cruickshank (R) for Trustee
Here's a resolution with details about date, time and place, posted by Pat Coon, Village Clerk:
