Letter to the Editor: Please join me and vote: Mary Farley for Supreme Court on November 3. There are two vacancies this year, so you can choose two candidates on the ballot. You can vote for Mary on either the Republican or Reform party line. Mary began campaigning in all 11 Counties of our 4th Judicial District back in January, when I first met her. She is intelligent, down-to-Earth, and is a people person. If you haven't met her in…
Letter to the Editor: Saratoga Springs is not only a beautiful place to live but, more importantly, it is a community of people who care about one and other. Every member of our community has value. As the seasons are changing and the weather is getting colder I have been thinking about the people in our community who are homeless. I think about what we can do to help them. Thankfully, there are programs and wonderful people within our community…
Having served on committees for Saratoga Peace Week, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, and as a volunteer helping homeless Veterans, I have come to know first-hand the long and continuing commitment that Joanne Yepsen has personally contributed to these initiatives and similar others to assure that our community’s high ideals and respect for the needy gets the support that is duly deserved. Mayor Yepsen’s efforts to protect our Greenbelt and her opposing the imposition of live casino gambling in our…
Letter to the Editor RE: 100TH ANNIVERSARY SHOW - NEW EASTCOAST ARMS COLLECTOR ASSOCIATES (NEACA) After 99 peaceful gun show years, our Saratoga Springs City Center, suddenly is harassed by protestors. Knowing that gun violence is most extreme in cities with the strictest gun laws, and they all have DEMOCRAT mayors, I realized that we must question who is behind the protestors in Saratoga Springs? The president of the organization is female; she does not want her name or face…
Letter to the Editor: As it's another local election year, let's see what Ken Ivins is running for this time around. Two years ago he ran for Saratoga Springs Supervisor and was soundly defeated. Four years ago, as the incumbent Commissioner of Finance his aspirations of retaining his Council seat was thwarted at the polls by the current Commissioner Michele Madigan. He was so bad at putting together budgets, that he kept raising taxes, laid off 49 city employees, slashing…
Letter to the Editor: Saratoga Needs a New Mayor Who Doesn’t Sit On Major Projects As a Captain of the Saratoga Springs Fire Department for 21 years, now retired, and a member of this great department for 39 years, I believe Mayor Yepsen is looking out for herself as a career politician rather than the city. Yepsen is a synonym for endless dialogue. She prefers to talk, talk, talk rather than making decisions or accomplishing what needs to be done. …
Letter to the Editor: Please consider what is best for our City in the November 3 elections. Vote for the three Commissioners who reach across party lines, act responsively, and work in an unbiased manner to see that our City will prosper and thrive. Please vote for Chris Mathiesen, Michele Madigan and Skip Scirocco. Linda and Don Snyder Saratoga Springs
Letter to the Editor: As a senior citizen, I am concerned about the social values of John Safford. He announced in his October 23rd statement “Economic Plan” for Saratoga Springs, “senior housing didn’t make sense in that location”-(downtown). I think his plan is flawed and insensitive to the needs of seniors. He has failed to recognize many seniors do not have automobiles. Proximity to public transportation or walkability is essential. I wonder if his “Economic Plan” is supported by sound…
Letter to the Editor: As someone who worked with Joanne Yepsen for many years at Skidmore College and has been her friend for more than 25 years, I said two years ago that she was the best choice for mayor of Saratoga Springs. I feel strongly that Joanne is still the best choice for mayor. It is rewarding to see her continue to advocate for open government and transparency. It is inspiring to see her advocate for the homeless of…
