Veitch Kicks-Off Campaign For Re-Election

By Staff Report | News

SARATOGA SPRINGS – Matthew Veitch has officially started his campaign for re-election to serve on the Saratoga County Board of Supervisors representing Saratoga Springs.

Veitch promised to continue to work on the creation of a trails program throughout the county. As Chairman of the Trails Committee, Veitch has worked toward the planning and construction of over 11 miles of new trails for use by Spa City and Saratoga County residents.

He said his bi-partisan leadership has been a hallmark of his tenure in office, contributing to many of his accomplishments as a Supervisor. He pointed to his co-chairmanship of the Gateway Action Program of Saratoga (GAPS), with Democrat City Councilman John Franck, as evidence of two people of opposite parties working together to help the city of Saratoga Springs.

As Chairman of the Technology Committee, Veitch has pushed for modernizing outdated county systems, most recently advocating for and receiving a budget line in 2013 to automate the time collection system for employees, which is projected to save at least $500,000 dollars this year.

Throughout his announcement last week, Veitch noted the significant issues that have come up in Saratoga County over the last few years.

“Things look good but uncertain in 2013 at Saratoga County. My job as Supervisor is to seek out and identify the problems and then work with my fellow Supervisors and our City Council to solve them. New initiatives and better monitoring of our processes are what’s needed to maintain what makes Saratoga County great—low taxes, a great quality of life, and balanced economic growth,” said Veitch.

If elected, this will be Veitch’s fourth term as Supervisor.
