“Samuel Tress, a Democratic candidate for the Ramapo Town Board, has a federal mail-fraud conviction and, when questioned about whether he lives in New Jersey, admitted he did. Tress, currently a member of the Ramapo Zoning Board of Appeals, initially said he lived at a Monsey apartment he rents. He later clarified, “I’m not denying that I live in New Jersey, but I am most of the week in Monsey.” He acknowledged being federally prosecuted in 2004 and said the community doesn’t know about it. “I don’t remember if I actually pleaded guilty,” he said, but court records show that Tress pleaded guilty in December 2004 to the felony, admitting he falsely assumed an identity to obtain a home mortgage loan from a bank in connection with the purchase of a home in Spring Valley. He was sentenced in March 2005 to three years of supervised release.Tress, the CEO of East Morgan Holdings, a Lakewood, New Jersey-based remediation company, owns a home in Lakewood, tax records show.” Tress has served on St. Lawrence’s Zoning Board of Appeals for years.
