Familiar Halfmoon Democrat tries for another post
The Democratic supervisor hopeful from two years ago in Halfmoon is running again this year, but only for a seat on the Halfmoon Town Board.
Deanna Stephenson, who gave a hearty challenge to Republican incumbent Supervisor Mindy Wormuth in 2011, is one of two Democratic candidates vying for a seat on the town board. The other Democratic candidate is Joseph Christopher.
" I will provide balance, encourage smart growth, and promote sound, sustainable fiscal practices—three fundamental principles that have been absent from Halfmoon town government for some time," Stephenson said in a statement.
Christopher, who lacks the profile of Stephenson, is a lifelong resident of the town and teaches English at Greenwich High School. His decision to run stemmed from his commitment to the town.
“My platform is simple; I will provide the balance necessary to steer Halfmoon back to the middle and bring health to our system," Christopher said in a statement. “I’m a common person who goes to work each day to support a family."
The two candidates are also backed by the Independence and Working Families parties.
