Schmitt opposes SUEZ rate hike

New Windsor, NY -- (6/16/16) Colin Schmitt, candidate for the 99th Assembly District, released the following statement today:

"Yesterday I attended the information session and public hearing on SUEZ Water New York Inc. proposed 14% rate increase. I carefully listened to the presentation and public comments on the potential increase. It is alarming that SUEZ wants our families and seniors to bail out a bad investment. I stand with Supervisor Monaghan and my Stony Point neighbors in strongly opposing this rate increase. I will do all in my power to stop it and when elected to the State Assembly always stand with our community against outlandish rate hikes."

Colin J. Schmitt is a resident of New Windsor. He serves in the Army National Guard and previously served as Director of Operations for the NYS Senate Veterans, Homeland Security and Military Affairs Committee. For more information visit
