I have thirty years experience both locally and worldwide. I’m the President of the Nyack Chamber of Commerce. I also serve on the Nyack Zoning Board, the Waterfront Committee and the Nyack Business Council.
Over the last twenty years, I have dedicated my energies to the Village of Nyack. As President of the Nyack Chamber of Commerce, I have had the privilege of helping bring our downtown back to life during and after the pandemic. I also provide management of revived downtown events, including the Nyack Halloween Parade and Classic Car show.
I know about what is happening in our Village, and can bring a fresh and caring perspective to the Village Board of Trustees. Nyack has many challenges before us, including a housing crisis, panhandling downtown, major housing developments, and increasing access to Village government.
The housing crisis in Nyack is a source of sorrow to so many families. The prices of rental apartments are out of control. The Village must enact the Emergency Tenant Protection Act as soon as possible.
I am the only candidate with broad experience in Nyack, including all the organizations on which I serve. This includes being the president of the Nyack Chamber of Commerce, and a director of the tourism organization called Visit Nyack, Inc.
I thank Nyack voters for taking the time to learn more about my qualifications and experience. I invite you to review my website at rogercohen.com.
