Rolison to run for Poughkeepsie mayor


Rolison: “… continue to move it foward”

POUGHKEEPSIE – Republican Dutchess County Legislature Chairman Robert Rolison will officially announce his candidacy for Poughkeepsie mayor next Wednesday.
Rolison, a retired Poughkeepsie town police officer, has been in the legislature for a dozen years, and said he now wants to give back to his hometown.
“The City of Poughkeepsie is the county seat and it is such an important place in history and in today’s world that we live in, which is so non-stop and always on the go, the city is a very vibrant place, but we need to continue to move it forward,” he said.
Rolison will not be running for the county legislature this fall, but he said it will be good to have new blood on the county level.
Current Mayor John Tkazyik cannot run again because of term limits.
Two Democrats have already announced their candidacy – Alderman Robert Mallory and Poughkeepsie School Board Member Randall Johnson.
