Dutchess County faces many changes and challenges to remain rural while supporting vibrant villages and towns. The high taxes, and lack of senior and mental health services, poor roadways, little accountability for politicians, and out of control spending all affect our quality of life every day.



Whether you support my vision and leadership for Dutchess County or my Ideas to improve the quality of life here, I need your support to reach more people and that costs money. Please consider a contribution of any amount to support my campaign. You are also supporting Common Sense politics and an Independent candidate. Give to The Friends of Dean Gilbert



I have spent my adult life studying politics and political history, Over the years the process of representation has been eroded in favor of backroom decisions rife with cronyism and conflicts of interest. I have traveled the nation researching  towns for solutions and found many. My career as a pollster, keeping up with the pulse of America serves me well in repairing what is wrong with politics in Dutchess County.



There is no better way to connect with your fellow neighbors and County residents than to Volunteer. You will meet all kinds of incredible people who make up Dutchess County and hear first hand what others experience living and working here.This is the purpose of the Common Sense movement!

You can support keeping Dutchess politics local with real transparency and honest representation. Donate or Volunteer now!
