Protect, Enhance & Preserve Saratoga

By Tim Holmes, Candidate Mayor, Saratoga Springs | Letters to the Editor

Our home, Saratoga Springs, is a world-class community, a gift to all who live here or visit. I cherish everything about our city, and I believe we share a duty to protect, enhance and preserve it for our children and grandchildren. That’s why I’m running for Mayor.

Saratoga Springs is frequently honored as one of the finest small cities in America, and it deserves a city government that is responsive to the needs of our people and respectful and courteous to all. As mayor, I will: 

1. Ensure that Saratoga Spring is financially strong, that taxes are held in check, and that we have a long-term plan for investments in infrastructure and quality-of-life amenities and in protecting the safety and well-being of our people;

2. Protect our open space, historic character, our residential neighborhoods, our recreational amenities, and our vibrant downtown;

3. Advocate for our small businesses and our higher education and arts and cultural communities and work hand-in-hand with our friends in racing;

4. Earn the trust of our residents (and make them proud) by adhering to the highest standards of ethical conduct and public transparency.

I consider public service a privilege and will never forget that I serve at the pleasure of the people. I would be honored to serve as your Mayor and ask for your vote on Nov. 5. 

- Tim Holmes, Candidate Mayor, Saratoga Springs
