Heidi Owen West for Mayor

By Mike Brandi | Letters to the Editor

On November 2, I will be casting my ballot for Heidi Owen West for Mayor of Saratoga Springs, and I think your readers should too. My reasons for supporting Heidi are simple. First, I value private sector experience in a politician. Heidi runs three successful, mainstay, businesses on Broadway. Balancing a budget (including paying your taxes), managing payroll, and understanding the impact of government action on small business make Heidi uniquely qualified to take on the role of Mayor. Second, Heidi is not registered to a political party. In these times, this is especially rare, but Saratoga Springs has the opportunity to put politics aside and elect a natural leader into office.  Even the local democratic party sought to endorse Heidi when searching for a candidate to run on their line. Third, Heidi listens to the community. Whether through her numerous volunteer roles in the community, to her customers, neighbors, or employees, Heidi is a true advocate for our City, our residents, and our visitors. In sum, Heidi has the experience and dedication to lead our City into the future as we rebound from the COVID-19 pandemic. She has my vote, and I think she should have yours too.
