New Hyde Park board member named


HYDE PARK - Neil Krupnick was sworn in as Ward 1 councilman for Hyde Park at a town board ceremony on Monday night.

Krupnick was chosen by the town board to fulfill the remainder of the term of Emily Svenson who resigned as councilwoman earlier this month.

Krupnick has never held elected office before but is no stranger to local government. He is responsible for having revamped the town's website and has served as the webmaster since the site went live.

The University of Wisconsin graduate has also served on the town's Zoning Board of Appeals and Visual Environment Committee as well as volunteering a substantial amount of time to the "Downtown Initiative," the project responsible for providing sewer service to the Route 9 corridor.

Upon learning of Svenson's premature departure, Krupnick, with the support of his wife Ann, threw his name into consideration he said because "I knew it was extremely important for the town to retain as much continuity and momentum as possible for the remainder of the term." Krupnick will serve out the rest of the term which expires on December 31st.

All town board members are up for reelection in November and as of right now, Krupnick plans to run for a full term of his own.
