To the editor:
Joann Stabile is a candidate running on the CommUNITY party ticket for one of the new village trustee positions. She has lived in the Town of Woodbury for the last 34 years and is married 32 years to Peter, who as we all know, is the Woodbury Town Highway Superintendent.
Together they raised two children, Joann and Peter III, who are now grown and married.
Joann was a successful local business owner in Central Valley for 17 years, a former member of the Women of Woodbury and the Highland Mills Ladies Fire Auxiliary, as well as chairperson of Woodbury Community Day, a member of the Woodbury Parks Commission and FEMA-certified Crisis Manager and a member of St. Patrick Church in Highland Mills.
Joann is currently a regional safety and accident prevention manager with a regional trucking company in Newburgh, and the first woman to hold this position in the 88-year history of the company.
When the residents elect the CommUNITY Party as the new village board, they will work closely with the town board to ensure that all town services will stay intact and they will defend against anyone who tries to annex any land out of the village. Their goal is to minimize village taxes.
In recent years, the most commonly cited reason for seeking incorporation is the desire to control or limit local development, principally by getting more localized control over zoning. Local zoning powers are not absolute, and are limited by state law as well as court decisions. Those seeking to control and guide development through incorporation are well advised to proceed carefully to make certain that their wishes fall within the effects that are possible and legal and to be certain that they take actions that will not produce unwanted side effects.
So vote for the CommUNITY party on Nov. 2 at the Senior Center from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. You will find the CommUNITY Party on Row D Bottom line, so vote bottom line. That is where Woodbury’s future is.
