This NYS Master Teacher was a new student to politics when I ran for the school board last year. I learned some hard lessons, but as a practitioner of faith and the Greek philosophy of stoicism, I recognize that the obstacle is the way.
Regarding politics, I decided not to register with a party and have my own philosophy: life is gray, and I'm purple.
While the school board election was remarkable and unique, this election has some similarities. I deeply appreciated when people publicly supported me (thank you!), therefore I publicly support the following candidates: Meg Kelly for Mayor, Michele Madigan for Finance Commissioner, Skip Scirocco for Public Works, Matt Veitch for Supervisor, Steve Mittler for Supervisor, Robin Dalton for Public Safety.
When my husband and I decided to settle in the City of Saratoga Springs, we considered the following factors: taxes, crime, the current state of the city, its future outlook, how the city was run, the governmental structure, and the faith that we had in the people running the city.
Based on my experience meeting with each of these individuals, this is the team that would work best together for the optimum benefit of our city.
