Town Democrats nominate Steger for council

Posted Wednesday, July 22, 2020 12:37 pm

The Town of Newburgh Democratic Committee has nominated Rich Steger to be its candidate for Town Council in the upcoming special election to be held on November 3 to fill a vacancy on the Council which was created by the resignation of James Presutti.

In accepting the nomination, Steger promised to be a voice for those who are not heard by the current Town Council. “We need a new, independent Council member to watch over the Council’s spending,” said Steger. “It’s time to elect someone who will not only ask questions, but will ensure the actions of the Council are clear to the residents”.

Steger has been a teacher in the Valley Central School District since 1993. He is a graduate of Newburgh Free Academy. He received his undergraduate degree at the State University of New York at Cortland and his Masters of Science in Education at Mount Saint Mary College. He earned his Certificate in Advanced Graduate Study in Educational Leadership from the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts.

Steger has been active in the teachers’ union for over 24 years and is currently the president of the Valley Central Teachers’ Association.

Steger is also active in the Hudson Valley Area Labor Federation, the Town of Newburgh Democratic Committee, the Orange County Democratic Committee, Stewart State Park Trail Maintenance, and the Hope Not Handcuffs Program.

“I have spent my career using my leadership skills to advocate for my students and members at both the local and state level. I look forward to using my leadership skills to advocate for the Town of Newburgh residents,” said Steger,19064

Mr. Patrick J. McLaughlin, 

This weekend, I'm hosting four town halls in the Hudson Valley, and I want to hear from you!

Town Halls are an opportunity for you to ask questions and share comments and concerns with me one-on-one. My staff will also be there to help you cut through red tape at federal agencies, such as the Social Security Administration, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, or the Veterans Administration.

On Saturday, July 13, I'll be at the Deerpark Senior Center (410 Route 209, Huguenot) from 10:30-11:30 AM. Then, from 12:30 - 1:30 PM, I'll be at the Warwick Valley Community Center (11 Hamilton Ave, Warwick).

On Sunday, July 14, I'll be at the Putnam County Bureau of Emergency Services (112 Old Rt 6, Carmel) from 10:30 - 11:30 AM. After, from 12:30 - 1:30 PM, I'll be at the Pound Ridge Town House, (179 Westchester Ave, Pound Ridge).

I hope to see you there!
