Why Get Involved?

 I often hear, "Why get involved in politics?"
"What difference can one person make?"
Well, what if George Washington had thought that way?
Or Martin Luther King, Jr.? Or Susan B. Anthony?
Or Gandhi?
Never underestimate the power of good ideas and the unwavering commitment to make things better.
Hard work and persistence can move mountains
and you can be the one do it!

About Mark...

Mark Grimm was elected in 2015, and re-elected in 2019, to represent the Carman Road/Western Avenue area of Guilderland (District 29). View map of district.

Mark hit the ground running in his first term in the Albany County Legislature. In his first six months, 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 has
  • cut the county tax rate each year in office
  • kept his promise to have Guilderland receive more of its fair share of county funds
  • co-authored a sweeping modernization bill to make county government easier to follow and reduce waste of paper
  • voted to improve benefits for veterans and protect animals
  • spoken out against poor legislation that would harm small businesses and not-for-profits

Work to be done...

There are challenges ahead. The legislature remains much too large (39 members). Protecting the taxpayer requires constant attention and the need for more transparency never stops.

Mark works very hard to ease the tax burden, provide services more effectively and...always...look out for Guilderland!
