During these times of fiscal crisis in our economy, state and federal government, it’s refreshing to have a town supervisor like Patti Southworth. Southworth has held the line on spending.
Thanks to her leadership, Ballston is still town and highway tax free. This is no small accomplishment since other town board members want to spend and spend.
With all the extra fiscal stress that this economy has placed on many households, it is nice to know Town Supervisor Patti Southworth is watching our backs. Now, under Patti Southworth’s leadership it appears that new jobs and a grocery store will be coming to Ballston. Some worry about traffic but fail to realize the PUD legislation gives the Ballston Town Board ultimate control on traffic.
Before this new town law, we had no control on traffic expansion. Thanks, supervisor, for giving control to the town.
Supervisor Southworth is proactive, unlike others who are reactive. While other communities are losing businesses, Ballston is gaining them. This is smart growth in a downsizing economy. Ballston gets new businesses like SENSA, which creates jobs and increases property tax and school tax revenue, which helps the homeowner.
Patti Southworth works very well with elected officials at the county, state and federal levels to help resolve problems residents have. Thanks, Patti, for working for us.
