Kohut Sits in the Mayor’s Seat

Democrat Michael Kohut, formerly a Village Trustee,  defeated three-term Mayor “Bud” Wassmer, who is also a long-term resident of the Village. The entrance of a new mayor insights a sense of uncertainty amid Haverstraw renaissance supporters. With such a major political upset it is hard to tell whether the Village will move forward smoothly in its dealings with Ginsburg Development Corporation and the Haverstraw Revitalization Project. This may or may not be an opportunity to move the project forward at a quicker pace, something Mr. Kohut has promised time and time again. Kohut said after his win, “I am humbled and hoping only that I can produce results that people are hoping for, but I need their help to do it.”
