Town Council: Christopher Demick

Chris Demick
Town Council

Chris Demick seeks your support for re-election as a member of the Stephentown Town Council. Chris is a lifelong resident of Stephentown and a graduate of Berlin Central School. Chris also completed Hudson Valley Community College’s HVAC program. He is a member of the Plumbers and Steamfitters Union Local #7 and has worked for 20 years as an HVAC technician for Honeywell. He and his wife, Christine, and their two children live on Madden Road. His hobbies include hunting, fishing and camping.

Chris is completing his first 4-year term on the Town Council. He has worked effectively with PJ Roder to bring more integrity, accountability and a more open forum to the Stephentown community. He worked to implement a new Fuel Management System for the Town and shared services with the Stephentown Fire District, the Berlin School District, and the Rensselaer County Highway Department. He has also worked with the Dog Control Officer to improve local laws and enforcement procedures of stray and mistreated animals.

Chris and PJ have worked closely with ERCSWMA, which has improved Stephentown’s input into the day-to-day operations of the Transfer Station, which accounts for 20% of the Town Budget. This has allowed the modification of services to better meet the needs of Stephentown residents and a lowering of overall costs. They have also been successful in making improvements at the Transfer Station, including the installation of concrete pads, and the Town Garage, including repairs to the roof and overhead doors, and the installation of new entry doors. Chris and PJ have also worked through the budget process to procure a new snow plow and mowing tractor for the Town Highway Department.

Chris has been a positive force on the Town Council and is dedicated to taking a bipartisan approach to the issues of Stephentown. He often says he is “just a regular guy trying to do what is right for my family and the community.” He deserves the chance to serve Stephentown for another four years.
