Community Work

Neil Krupnick hit the ground running as a community volunteer since choosing to retire in Hyde Park with his wife, Ann. Neil has been a dedicated member of the Zoning Board of Appeals since 2017, and an enthusiastic supporter of the physical changes to the town executed by successive Rohr administrations. A writer/director/video editor by trade, Neil volunteered last year to oversee and implement the redesign of the town’s 18-year old website, and after its launch, has since served as the town’s Webmaster. Neil and Ann have created promotional videos for the town’s Visual Environment Committee for its garden tour Hyde Park in Bloom and Home for the Holidays tour of decorated homes, as well as videos used for the Town’s Downtown Initiative web site.

Background, Education, & Career

Neil will bring his wealth of knowledge regarding social media platforms and marketing to the Town Board while working closely with outgoing Town Board member Emily Svenson for a seamless transition in representing Ward 1.  
Neil attended the University of Wisconsin where he received a B.A. in Communication Arts. Before graduating, he worked for the local ABC affiliate, directing the evening news and producing commercials. Upon returning to the East Coast, Neil worked for Nickelodeon and then started his own production company, which he ran successfully for 25 years. His clients included Fox, Showtime, MSG, and Syfy.
