Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - OBITUARIES - Free­man staff

Deputy Town Su­per­vi­sor Kathie Quick, a Demo­crat, ap­pears to have nar­rowly de­feated her GOP op­po­nent to serve the fi­nal year of a four-year term on the Esopus Town Board

The seat cur­rently is held by Les Kal­mus, who was ap­pointed to the seat and chose not to seek elec­tion to the re­main­der of the term. The seat was va­cated when Diane McCord was elected town su­per­vi­sor last year.

Quick drew 2,100 votes to Repub­li­can Jared Geuss’ 2,083, ac­cord­ing to un­of­fi­cial re­sults.

Quick, 67, of 39 Hil­drebrandt Lane, Ul­ster Park, is a re­tired el­e­men­tary school teacher who taught in the Marl­boro school dis­trict. A rental prop­erty man­ager, she works with her hus­band, John Quick, at the Quick Stop Deli in Port Ewen.

Quick has lived in the town for 43 years.

Geuss, 32, of 248 Green St., Port Ewen, is a fore­man with the New York State Bridge Au­thor­ity. He has lived in the town since 1989.

Geuss pre­vi­ously owned Af­ford­able Lawn and Snow land­scap­ing busi­ness.
