Hailing from New York's town of Colonie, Town Supervisor Peter Crummey was inspired to run for office after spending years working as a lawyer and judge. He would say his favorite part of his job is helping shape policies and create opportunities in his community.


He would say his biggest accomplishment so far is restoring over 50 miles of road within his first two years in office. His top priority for the rest of his term is to revitalize the Mohawk River area.

Peter Wins Reelection!


The Town of Colonie Republicans swept town seats and the County Legislature is mixed. All of the races where there was more than one candidate were highly contested this cycle.


For town seats, Supervisor Peter Crummey  and Julie Gansle each won reelection to a new four-year term. Voters approved changing both positions to four years last year. They were both unopposed.


Crummey, however, did run a campaign and included other candidates on the Republican side of the ballot.


“I ran as if I had an opponent. Five of six times I ran for Colonie office, I ran unopposed,” he said. “You need to stay viable and it is always about and for the next time you run. And there always is a next time.”


Crummey ran campaign ads in print, radio and television as well as campaign material that all of the candidates carried while visiting doors in person.


“I believe that approach encouraged people to come out and vote,” he said. “We kept at it so citizens know we care about what goes on here. It brought to light the entire ticket.”

Peter Speaks to Siena Students on Real World Insights Into Political Communication!


Want a realistic perspective on how a political campaign is run? Just ask someone who’s been elected.


To give his students the inside track on running for public office and, more importantly, serving constituents once you’re elected, Taewoo Kang, Ph.D., assistant professor of political communication, recently welcomed Town of Colonie Supervisor Peter Crummey to speak to his Introduction to Political Communication class. 

Siena is located within the Town of Colonie (their offices are located right across Route 9 from campus) and works regularly with the town on matters of permitting, public safety, taxation and infrastructure. Crummey spoke about his decades of public service as a Colonie town judge and court administrator, and his campaign for town supervisor. He was sworn in to that office in January 2022. 


“I was thrilled to address and interact with the vibrant Siena students in Dr. Kang’s class,” said Crummey. “Good elected officials are often skilled orators, but not all are skilled listeners.  To truly understand and connect with voters, and ultimately constituents, it is best to be both.  Hopefully, our classroom discussion will inspire some of Dr. Kang’s students to consider a future in public service.”

Peter Discusses His Position on Stony Creek Reservoir

...As you know, the Stony Creek Reservoir is situated in the Town of Clifton Park and was long ago purchased by our town and established as our reservoir in 1953.  This purchase of land, and the water it contains, was accomplished under the leadership and foresight of longtime Colonie town Republican supervisor, William K. Sanford, for the purpose of providing an additional source of water for our town.


...Further, I am unaware of any candidate, seeking town election this year, proposing to sell our town's reservoir.  The reservoir remains a valuable asset to our town and should remain as such.
