Corey Bachman: 'I’m ready to serve'

02 Mar 2020 | 02:09

    I’m ready to serve as a Trustee of the Village of Warwick.

    Over the next four years, I’ll work to upgrade our stressed infrastructure, increase downtown sustainability efforts, propose a business district marketing model, enhance facilities for all residents at our existing parks and encourage cooperation among municipalities to improve efficiency and streamline services.

    I'll be a voice for action on the Village Board.

    Throughout outgoing Trustee Eileen Patterson's 12-year tenure on the Board, she's been tough, thorough and unwavering in her commitment to the community. As she's decided not to run for re-election, I'm grateful to Eileen for endorsing me to fill her seat.

    The Village of Warwick is more than Victorian homes and scenic scenes of rural life. It's a unique and special place. I'm running to protect and preserve our Village's landmarks, neighborhoods and character.

    This new decade will require new ideas, skills and faces to address the needs of our changing community.

    We need to bolster our efforts to keep the historical integrity and heritage of our Village intact.

    We must further our commitment to thoughtful and strategic business and housing development.

    Our boards should allow for more transparency throughout the planning process to facilitate input from residents.

    We also need to ensure the infrastructure that is already in place can handle these proposed projects.

    If left unchecked, large-scale commercial and residential expansion will change our open spaces and gateways into our Village.

    Electing leaders from different generations who think hyper-local will foster the vision of our comprehensive plan over time.

    I've volunteered to assist the Comprehensive Plan Committee (CPC) with reviewing the NYStretch Energy Code-2020. This code would reduce operating costs, energy consumption and pass on savings to taxpayers.

    As an elected Trustee, I’d use my background and experience to serve and support each stakeholder.

    I'm an active volunteer for the Warwick Lions Club, the Warwick Historical Society, Sustainable Warwick and the Town of Warwick's Friendly Visitor Program.

    I'm honest, passionate and committed to improving the way of life for all who call our Village home.

    Throughout this campaign, I've knocked on hundreds of doors in our Village to hear from residents about the issues that matter to them. I'm the candidate for the Village Voice Party and ask for your vote on Wednesday, March 18.

    With our busy schedules, not every resident can attend the evening board meetings. I hope to be your voice at Village Hall — where decisions are made that will directly affect your quality of life, your family and our future.

    Election Day is Wednesday, March 18, 2020. The polling location is Goodwill Hook & Ladder Company at 25 Church Street Extension. Polls are open for village residents from 6 a.m.- 9 p.m.
