For the publisher:
The people of Nova Scotia love their sleepy little town. No traffic, little delinquency, rural landscapes, picturesque churches. Not much when you think about it.
Smith’s Tavern is gone, Stewart’s in the village of Voorheesville is closed, our hometown hardware store is closed, examples could fill this page. Residents from all over the city often drive to Guilderland or Bethlehem for things like services, entertainment, or to buy clothes or shoes.
The current municipal apparatus – that is, the city council and the supervisor – are all of the same party, and Americans instinctively distrust monopolies. Bad in business and worse in government.
The time has come for all voices in the city to be heard. The list of Republican candidates in Nova Scotia – Erik Grissell for city supervisor, Peter Drao and Charissa Mayer for city council and Lori Dollard for city clerk – want the chance to have your voice heard and revitalize Nova Scotia.
These highly qualified candidates favor three initiatives to awaken Nova Scotia:
– Promotion and preservation of small business in all parts of the city; nobody wants big boxes. Micro and small businesses would improve our city;
– A voice for all residents, breaking the tired monopoly. Republicans support things like town halls where all voices are heard and took into consideration; and
– Improved quality of life through a top-down review of all rules, regulations and policies that limit freedom and property rights in our city.
The current administration will highlight their achievements over the past 10 years, countable on the one hand. They will undoubtedly list things that they did not play a role in advancing.
They will cite a dilapidated barn as their greatest pride – six years and hundreds of thousands of Public dollars and it’s still nowhere.
There is a vague uproar of activity in Voorheesville – attributable to Republican presence and pressure. More is needed across town, not just in Voorheesville. Ten years is too long to wait, too little and far too late.
Replace the current dormant administration with people who will get things done and preserve our beautiful city in every corner for all.
