Guilderland needs fresh leadership

To the Editor:

I am writing today to express my heartfelt support of Mark Grimm for Guilderland town supervisor.

I am a small business owner residing in Guilderland.  I met Mark when he knocked on my home door during his recent campaigning efforts.

While I was only vaguely familiar with Mark, I've since drilled down on him.  His résumé is quite impressive!

Mark is a leader and has a get-things-done attitude.  His focus and determination, coupled with a command for speaking, has made him a valuable member of the town board in the past.

Mark's now looking to add town supervisor to his long list of accomplishments.  While the incumbent has held the position for 14 years, Mark has the ideas and the support of the people to win.

Fourteen years is too long for any elected official to hold office.  We need leadership that is fresh with new ideas and new visions.  

Mark has historically blocked new taxes, has kept projects for the elderly moving forward, supported cable competition, is a champion for environmental issues, and will work in the best interest of the people in the town of Guilderland.

It's time for a change of leadership in our town; electing Mark Grimm as town supervisor is a great first step!
