Kevin Veitch - Running for Greenfield Town Council

By | News

 

Q: What is your vision for Greenfield for the next five years?

Veitch: My vision for Greenfield five years from now is to see improved infrastructure such as an enlarged or new community center that could better serve the public. I would also like to explore the possibility of bringing the County water system systematically into Greenfield. I would also like to see Town Council meetings televised on public cable channels or possibly You Tube. In addition, we will need to develop a proactive approach of developing laws that would regulate future projects much like the wind farms and solar arrays so that we aren't making knee jerk reactions during the approval process. Overall,  I am committed to preserving the unique character and way of life we as residents enjoy here in Greenfield. 

Q: How do you feel about ambulance plan and what would you like to see happen?

Veitch: Ambulance service is crucial in Greenfield and should not be taken lightly as to the type of service provided. Currently one third of the calls for service come out of Prestwick Chase. If those calls for service could be subtracted from the total with a self-serving ambulance service the savings to the town would allow the cost for improved service contracts to be minimal. In addition the contracts for service need to be created with the best interest of the community in mind and closely monitored to ensure the service provided is in compliance with the negotiated agreements.

Q: What is the biggest difference between you and your opponents?

Veitch: I feel my 30 plus years of public service including 20 years of involvement with city government in Saratoga Springs in an administrative position qualifies me to best serve the community as town councilman.
