Today is Primary Day and for the first time in years, members of the Working Families and Independence parties have the opportunity to vote for candidates who really reflect the ideals of those parties.
As anyone who knows me can tell you, I am a true progressive. Operative word: PROGRESS. That is something the Town of Schodack hasn't had in decades. Our town officials block real progress and promote projects that benefit their friends, family members, and contributors at the expense of residential neighborhoods. For them, government is about power, money, and getting jobs for their friends and family members.
As anyone who knows me can tell you, I am a true independent. I don't do things because someone tell me to do them - I do things because they are the right thing to do.
The first step to bringing true representation to Schodack is voting for me and my running mates - Tracey Rex for Town Board and Jen Sober for Town Justice - in today's primary.
And as that old adage says, the longest journey begins with a single step.
Take that journey with us.
