SLEEPY HOLLOW, N.Y. For Sleepy Hollow trustee David Schroedel, four years is enough.
There are qualified people who would like to run, he said. I think it's time.
The two-term village trustee is not seeking re-election in March. Schroedel says he ran four years ago to resolve legal matters surrounding the redevelopment of the General Motors site and to reorganize the police department.
I accomplished the goals I set out to do, he said, adding that the board completed his third goal by holding down taxes.
Schroedel was first elected to the board in 2008 and re-elected in 2010. During his terms, he has been active with the public safety committee and finance committee. He has also worked on the village's water issues .
Schroedel says he's proud of significant changes to the village's financial system made while he was on the board. He added that the village is now in a much stronger position and has a very healthy tax situation.
When River's Edge and General Motors come on board, we're going to be one of the truly blessed communities in Westchester, and I'm proud I was a part of putting that in place, he said.
Village elections will take place on March 20. Incumbent Karin Wompa will run alongside newcomers Jennifer Lobato-Church and Susan MacFarlane on the Democratic ticket . Newcomers Daniel Scott, David Bedell and Sean Roach are running on the Sleepy Hollow Independent ticket .
