Tistrya Houghtling for Assembly_WEB BANNER-2
Born and raised in New Lebanon and now serving the public as the elected Town Clerk, Tistrya Houghtling has brought commitment, compassion and service to everything she does.
Tistrya graduated as valedictorian from the New Lebanon Jr/Sr High School in 1997 and, after college, she traveled the country organizing and coordinating multi-thousand person events.  Her love of people and attention to detail quickly made her one of the most sought after festival planners in the country.
8 years ago Tistrya returned to her hometown to raise her family and give back to the community that gave her so much throughout her childhood.  She now, once again, calls New Lebanon her home with her husband and 3 children, along with their dog and chickens.
Called to public service, Tistrya served as the Deputy Court Clerk in the New Lebanon Town Court from 2010 - 2011 when she got promoted to Court Clerk.  After 5 years of service in the Court, Tistrya ran a successful campaign for Town Clerk winning votes across all party lines, winning a contested race by a 13% margin.

In her 2 1/2 years as Town Clerk, Tistrya has served all of her constituents efficiently and with a smile!
Some of Tistrya's Innovations:
    • Tistrya works hard for an open and transparent government by making documents easily accessible on the Town's website
    • Sends out regular email blasts,  to keep them apprised of what is going on in their community,
    • Mails a quarterly newsletter to all residents specifically reaching our growing senior population who don't use email or have access to the town website.
    • Set up two programs when she saw a need in her community for support of families in crisis: the holiday gift drive and the free store.
      • The holiday gift drive connects families in the community who need support providing gifts for their children at the holidays with people in the community who are able and willing to provide this support.
      • The free store works to keep items out of the landfill as well as providing clothing, shoes and children's items to people who need them.  Anybody can come and take what they need for free!
    • Tistrya has also worked tirelessly to assist her town in completing high impact actions through the clean energy communities program such as energy bench marking and applying for a grant to install an EV charging station.
Tistrya is running to be the Assemblywoman for District 107, expanding her dedication to serving as a representative for the people.   She will bring her passion for service, compassion for people, hard work and dedication to serve all of the communities of Assembly District 107!
