Milton Republicans Prepare for Change

MILTON — Three candidates have expressed interest in the town supervisor position that will be open in November.

At the Milton Town Board meeting on April 5, councilmen Scott Ostrander and Benny Zlotnick both indicated that they will seek an endorsement for supervisor from the town’s Republican Committee at its April 24 meeting.

Milton Supervisor Dan Lewza reportedly will not seek reelection to the position in November.

Councilwoman Barbara Kerr was the first to announce her intention of seeking support for the Republican endorsement to replace Lewza. Ostrander and Zlotnick recently decided to add their names to the mix.

In a statement, Ostrander explains how he has been a patrolman for the Ballston Spa Police Department for 29 years and plans to retire from the force in June. He also has served as a Saratoga County Sheriff’s deputy, and for 15 years as president of the local Police Benevolent Association.

Ostrander reports that he has partial ownership of “a private security firm” called Saratoga International Group, which employs 30 people.

Ostrander asserts that “his knowledge of budgeting, staff development and leadership will bring a new perspective and fresh ideas” to Milton government.

Zlotnick first became an active member of the Milton Republican Committee nearly 20 years ago. He then served on the town Planning Board from 2002 until winning an election for his current seat late in 2015.

As a member of the planning board, Zlotnick reviewed several large construction projects on Geyser Road—primarily condominiums and apartment complexes not far from the town offices—that have been welcomed by officials as positive signs of economic growth in Milton.

“We have to make sure we don’t go too fast and get in over our heads,” Zlotnick said, when asked to describe his vision for Milton’s future.
