Baird and Wood for Mamakating

November 3, 2011

I am a Mamakating resident, and for the first time in a long time I am encouraged about our forward motion. I think we have a strong leader in Harold Baird, who is helping to move us in the right direction. We are finally being business friendly, which is incredibly important if we are going to bring taxes down. We could certainly all use the relief.

The entire group of Republican candidates is made up of long-time residents who are all invested in this community. There isn’t one professional politician among them, and I firmly believe they understand what needs to be done to improve Mamakating.

I can’t say I haven’t had my issues in Mamakating, but any time over the last two years that I’ve wanted to address something, these representatives have always worked hard to help me. And I think adding Russ Wood, who has always been community-minded, will only make our leadership stronger.
