"Looking Out for You!"
Please view Mark's attempt to provide property tax relief:
Mark Grimm hit the ground running in his first term in the Albany County Legislature. In his first year in office, he visited every county department in order to be as well informed as possible and give county employees a chance to ask him questions.
Mark was elected with 65% of the vote in November 2015 to represent the Carman Road/Western Avenue area of Guilderland (District 29). View map of district.
Mark has proposed legislation to give county taxpayers a tax credit, funded with new casino revenue and proposed a cutting-edge communication plan to make the legislature more accessible to every day citizens. He was also successful in leading the way to prevent onerous legislation that would harm businesses and not-for-profits.
There are challenges ahead. The legislature is much too large for effective governance (39 members) and is very much tied to the old ways of conducting its business. Mark hopes to shed more light on how it operates. More citizen awareness and involvement offers the best hope for true reform.
Mark will continue to work hard to ease the tax burden, provide services in a more effective fashion and take a lot of the politics out of how the legislature operates. Never hesitate to contact him with a suggestion, concern or a need for help.
