"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.
Standing Up for Guilderland!
Mark has delivered on his promise to make sure Guilderland gets more of its fair share of county money:
Guilderland Babe Ruth Gets Grant for Dugouts
Guilderland Chamber Gets County Grant for Tech Improvements
New CPR Equipment for Guilderland Rescue Squad
New Archery Equipment for Guilderland Summer Camp
There are challenges ahead. The legislature is much too large for effective governance (39 members) and is too often tied to the old ways of doing business. Mark will continue to shed more light on how it operates.
Mark will work hard to ease the tax burden, provide services more effectively and...always...look out for Guilderland!
Never hesitate to contact him with a suggestion, concern or a need for help. If you wish to be placed on his email list for county legislature news,
