TRACEY REX

MEMBER OF THE SCHODACK TOWN BOARD

Councilwoman Tracey Rex has been a member of the Schodack Town Board since January 1, 2016.


Tracey Rex was first elected on November 3, 2015. Tracey's winning message of ending the one-party, one-gender rule of the town board that had saddled residents with high taxes and closed government resonated with the voters and helped propel her to victory.


By virtue of her victory, Councilwoman Rex became the first non-Republican to win a seat on the Schodack Town Board in two decades.


Tracey was re-elected on November 5, 2019 as the highest vote-getter of all the town council candidates. Councilwoman Rex campaigned on her record of bringing openness and transparency to the town board, and making it more accessible and accountable to the people it serves.


For nearly two years, Tracey live streamed town board meetings on her Facebook page until the town decided to follow her lead and do the same starting in 2019.


Councilwoman Rex is the only town board member to publish a column every month in The Advertiser newspaper to keep residents informed of important town government news and community events.


Since taking office in January of 2016, Tracey is the only town board member to have perfect attendance for all town board meetings.


Born and raised in Schodack, Tracey is a graduate of Maple Hill High School and is an Accountant for the Plumbers and Steamfitters Local 7 union.

Tracey Rex Wins Re-Election to the Schodack Town Board

November 6, 2019


Castleton-on-Hudson - Delivering on her promise to bring much-needed openness and transparency to the Schodack Town Board, Councilwoman Tracey Rex cruised to victory as the highest vote-getter in the four-person race for Town Council.


“I am extremely grateful and humbled by the outpouring of support I received throughout the campaign and on Election Day,” Councilwoman Rex said. “I look forward to working cooperatively with my partners in government to help make the town of Schodack the best it can be.”


According to Councilwoman Rex, Schodack residents – regardless of their party affiliation – appreciated her record of bringing openness and transparency to the town board, keeping them informed of town government and community news via her monthly newspaper column, and for being the only town board member with perfect meeting attendance.


“Showing up for work and staying in touch with the residents who I am sworn to serve is very important to me,” Councilwoman Rex said.


Despite facing a significant GOP enrollment advantage in town and having State Assemblyman Jake Ashby and County Legislator Chuck Peter of Schodack actively working for her opponents, Councilwoman Rex garnered more votes than both of her Republican challengers -- 10-year incumbent Mike Kenney and Dan Grandinetti, a six-year Board of Education member of the Schodack Central School District.


"To put into context how difficult it is for a non-Republican like Tracey Rex to win in a red town such as Schodack, the victorious 2019 Democratic candidate for Rensselaer County Family Court Judge lost Schodack by more than 500 votes," Michael J. Monescalchi, Chairman of the Rensselaer County Democratic Committee stated. "An objective review of past election results will confirm that it is easier for a Democratic candidate to win a countywide election than it is to be victorious in a townwide race in Schodack."


During her re-election campaign, Councilwoman Rex earned the endorsement of State Comptroller Tom DiNapoli, New York’s highest vote-getter in both 2014 and 2018.


“I enthusiastically endorse Schodack Town Councilwoman Tracey Rex for re-election,” Comptroller DiNapoli stated. “Tracey is a strong advocate for government transparency and accountability and has consistently shown her commitment to Schodack residents. Tracey Rex is a champion for everyone who calls Schodack home.”
