My campaign for Saugerties Town Supervisor is now entering full swing. I wish to convey to you the urgency for leadership with true conservative insight and application of conservative principles:
The Saugerties government may now be well financed but it is by your taxes and by the backing of your private property. The security of the individual is now at great risk. Like frogs in a simmering kettle, the heat is being turned up; gradually we are being boiled to death through taxation and removal of our individual liberties. Our money is being stolen through increasing taxes and assigned to private interests under the guise of grants, and attractions.
We are being betrayed by our elected leaders who continue this pattern. If either the current or former supervisor is re-elected you too may find yourself on the short list of those who are fleeing for a safer place to live.
You have known me for more than 10 years as an leader with courage, character, and consistency. Now is the time when my leadership skills are sorely needed to steer our town government back on a reasonable course.
As the Conservative nominee and an independent candidate my campaign promise is to hold the line on taxes and reduce them wherever possible. In respect for the people of this town I promise that I will neither seek nor accept a raise in salary.

On Thursday, Oct. 3 from 6-8 p.m. there will be a fund-raiser to provide financial support for the expenses being incurred with this endeavor. It is being held at the Stone Pony in Mt. Marion. I look forward to hearing your personal concerns and ideas. I know together we will succeed.
