Let’s Re-elect Meg Kelly Mayor

By A.C. Riley | Letters to the Editor

Saratoga Springs elections are fast approaching. Mayor Meg Kelly has many achievements to her credit.  She brought civil discussion to the Council table, and to external relations as well.  She led the Council toward conclusion of several projects that have been in the planning stages for far too long, including the soon to be constructed parking garage which will enhance the ability of our City Center to attract larger conferences, thereby benefitting the downtown business district. A fire station for the East Side is nearing a decision. She skillfully implemented the City’s disaster plan after the fire that damaged City Hall. The renovations will make City Hall more modern and efficient, but also complete some long-deferred maintenance.  She has shown the leadership ability to move City Hall operations to alternate sites in a way that ensured that necessary functions never missed a beat. 

All of these successes are a result of Meg Kelly’s ability to work with others, find compromises when necessary, and then do the hard work of tying up the loose ends so projects can move forward.  Meg has done that, and made it look easy.

Let’s re-elect Meg Kelly Mayor!
