You're Invited To A Party

We are having another party Thursday evening to help drum up support for the upcoming election. Last month we had a very successful event at the Tri-City ValleyCats game with more than 175 people attending. We expect a similar turnout Thursday evening with some exciting entertainment.

This party will be held at the Italian Community Center beginning at 5:30 p.m. It should be a great time. Senator Joe Bruno will be on hand, as will longtime Capital Region Idol Al Bruno. And for the kids, we are bringing in Cranberry the Clown. As usual, there will be a bit of something for the entire family, including some very tasty food selections.

Now that we are under 60 days until the election, it is time to kick it into another gear. As I have made my way through the City for the last few weeks the support I have received from people has been tremendous. Whether it is long-time friends saying how proud they are, or people I have never met pledging their support, it is great to hear.

We work very hard each day to make sure that the decisions we make benefit just one thing. The City of Troy. When you do that, you tend to anger different people because tough decisions sometimes have a negative impact. Despite those tough decisions, I believe we have been very fair and are proud of the hard work.

Come on out to the ICC, have a great night, and be part of the team moving Troy forward. Political affiliation does not matter at all, we are moving Troy forward together, as one group- not one party.
