Two years ago, I came to you as a new candidate for the Village of Baldwinsville Board of Trustees. It is with great pleasure that I announce I will be running for re-election on March 15.
I am a Village Party candidate for Trustee and share the party's ballot with Trustee Candidate Rick Presley and Elijah Huling Jr, candidate for Village Justice. We would appreciate your support and would, in turn, pledge to continue to serve you in the professional manner you deserve as taxpayers.
The future of Baldwinsville is exciting. If I am re-elected trustee, I will be extremely excited to be an integral part of that future.
As a trustee, I believe in: an open line of communication with village residents; offering quality services from our excellent police, court, clerk and public works staffs while providing solid fiscal management; backing continued growth for the village as a "tourist" destination, focusing on the waterfront and Lock Street areas with the hope of sparking downtown business growth; improving quality-of-life standards with a special eye toward senior citizens.
In my two years on the board, I have served the village as a member of the public safety committee and the intermunicipal committee for cable television, as a representative to the Canton Woods Board of
Directors and as part of the Tree City USA committee. I have served the residents of the village with hard work and enthusiasm. I have lived in Baldwinsville since 1958. My parents, Barney and Lucille (Blagoff) Clarke, grew up here. Baldwinsville is my home, and I love this place. My lovely wife, Linda, and I have lived in Candlewyck for 24 years and our three sons grew up in Baldwinsville.
If you re-elect me, I will be available, as always. Feel free to contact me any time before or after the elections to let me know what's on your mind.
And please, get out March 15 and vote.
Thanks in advance for your support.
