Sue Dove

Town Councilor - Candidate

Sue has been an active member of the Skaneateles Community for over 40 years.  From being a graduate of Skaneateles Central Schools, raising a family in the School District, working as the Director of the Skaneateles Area Chamber of Commerce,  serving as an active honorary member of the Skaneateles Volunteer Fire Department, being elected as a former Village Trustee, and owning and operating a business in the Skaneateles area, all of these factors give her the experience and judgment necessary to be an effective Skaneateles Town Councilor.

 

Sue's business experience will provide the skills needed to ensure that the Town continues to be fiscally responsible, and budgets for things such as long-term infrastructure improvements, recreational opportunities for its residents, including the re-purposing of the Austin Park Pavilion, and a long-term strategy for a viable transfer station.

 

One thing you may not know is that Sue came from a farming family in the Catskills of New York State.  This love of farming and agriculture contribute to her desire to see our farming families flourish, as well as a determination to maintain green space in our community. 

 

As we all are aware, Skaneateles Lake is one of our greatest assets.  Sue is committed to ensuring the Town works with other local groups and municipalities to continue stewardship of Skaneateles Lake. 

 

As a Town Councilor, Sue will do her best to ensure your tax dollars are kept at the lowest level possible, while utilizing them to the utmost.
