I sat down yesterday to do an interview with WTEN about my candidacy to be the next Mayor of Saratoga Springs and the NEWS10 anchor asked me some of the hardest hitting questions I've had in any interview to date this campaign season. Thank you to NEWS10 for the coverage and click below to watch my interview in full:
When you go to vote in the upcoming local election, be prepared for a very crowded ballot- read below to see what has changed and why and see this year's sample ballot for the Saratoga County Elections, as well as when and where early voting starts >>
#1 The 'minor' parties lost their lines on the ballot - so you won't see the Libertarian, Green Party, Independence or SAM party candidate to vote for because of new legislation enacted in NY State.
#2 You'll see lots of new independent ballot lines, like Saratoga Stronger Together, where you can vote for both myself and Adam Israel for Mayor and Commissioner of Finance.
#3: A note about the candidates on the Working Families Line - the original endorsed candidates for the WFP were pushed off the ballot line, by former Republicans (click here to read the details)- so be aware if you want to vote for a candidate that represents the Working Families Party ideology, you may NOT want to vote for anyone on that line this year.
Here's where you'll find the Stronger Together Line and where to vote for Robin:
…an informed voter! With 17 CANDIDATES running for 5 City Council seats, and a volatile local political scene mixed with the contentious rhetoric of national politics, the value of public discussion, transparent information and substantive debate could not be higher.
To that end, if you are looking for more information about my positions, here are a list of the questionnaires, forums and interviews I have been asked to participate in, in addition to the platform information I have listed here.
As a candidate for public office, I only want voters to have as much information about my positions and platform as possible- whether we agree or disagree on the issues, an open, honest approach is what you and every Saratogian voting this November 2nd deserves!
