member, running for third term BALLSTON – Supervisor Patti Southworth will be running for re-election on November 8. Southworth is running for a third term in order to continue working to secure the economic stability of the town. She is committed to continuing to stimulate economic growth and improving the quality of life for Ballston’s residents while keeping the town highway tax and town tax free. Southworth has worked to bring new businesses to town (including Sensa) and there are plans in the pipeline to bring on additional businesses. Southworth is dedicated to seeing through to completion the work currently in progress regarding the Farmland Protection Plan, which will allow active farming to remain in Ballston, preserving local businesses and the rural character of the town. During her years in office, Southworth has found new ways to streamline town business, making it cheaper and more efficient for the town to continue doing what it’s done all along. This May, Town Hall will become a Meals-On-Wheels distribution site. This will bring food to homebound residents, and open up Town Hall, allowing it to serve the function of a community meal center for Ballston seniors. Under Southworth’s tenure, Town Hall has also become an inclement weather and emergency shelter for residents, providing a place to get warm and receive water in times of need. All this has been done at no cost to the residents. Southworth has given you more – at no extra cost. Southworth has opened up the lines of communication between residents and town officials. She was instrumental in the development of the new town website, a vehicle, which allows residents to be more connected and to have more input into town business. From her first day in office, Southworth has been devoted to making herself available to residents at all times, not just via her town email and office phone, but by distributing her personal cell phone number – 518-4416548 – so residents can reach her outside of business hours.
