Democrat Quick appears to win Town Board seat
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.
