Promises fiscal responsibility, accountable advocacy for working families
Colonie Town Supervisor candidate Christine Benedict (R,C,I-Colonie) today issued the following statement regarding Comptroller DiNapoli’s assessment of town finances:
“The findings from the comptroller’s office demonstrate my opponent’s inability to budget with pragmatism and unwillingness to listen to Colonie families. The comptroller says that our town is under financial stress. Our unacceptable rating from last year did not improve.
“Supervisor Mahan is spending too much on the wrong things. Our finances are squeezed even though our roads are in disrepair and our police force is understaffed. I’ll invest in public safety and revitalizing our infrastructure instead of bloating the town payroll with my family members. Hardworking families in Colonie need to stick to a budget that reflects sound priorities, and I’ll run our town the same way.”
“Supervisor Mahan has shown a penchant for blaming bad news on previous administrations. After eight years in office, the excuses are wearing thin. Supervisor Mahan has simply failed to set our finances straight, and I’m ready to do the job on day one.”
