WATERTOWN, NY – Allison Crossman is announcing her candidacy for Mayor of the City of Watertown in the upcoming election. As an entrepreneur with a fresh prospective, she will bring new ideas to improve the City’s finances, make the City more business-friendly, and create jobs.
During her tenure as Vice President of Washington Street Properties, Mrs. Crossman worked to bring businesses to Watertown and contributed to the revitalization of downtown.
When asked about this experience, she stated: “It was rewarding to help turn around distressed properties and work with businesses to find them a home in Watertown. It was an opportunity to utilize my knowledge of our community and passion for its success to attract business investment to the community. I will use those same skills as Mayor to assist with job creation and retention of the educated youth that often leave our area in search of greater opportunities.”
Now, as co-owner of Crossman Towing, LLC, Mrs. Crossman manages all aspects of the business operations that include sustainability, contract negotiations, strategic planning, accounting, and employee management. “As an entrepreneur, I have an appreciation for the concerns of the business community,” noted Mrs. Crossman. “We have an opportunity to make the City of Watertown the best place to conduct business in the North Country. That’s what will drive economic development and create jobs.”
In addition to her business background, Mrs. Crossman brings experience serving the community through civil engagement. Being a certified foster parent through the House of the Good Shepherd since the age of 21, Mrs. Crossman has taken care of dozens of our community’s children. She is Co-President for the Board of Directors of the Resolution Center of Jefferson and Lewis County, a Board Member of the Greater Watertown North Country Chamber of Commerce, and a Board Member for the City of Watertown Zoning Board of Appeals.
Mrs. Crossman’s entrepreneurialism, and commitment to the community have allowed her to thrive as a businesswoman and will help assure her success as Mayor of Watertown.
