"Our Persistent and Effective Advocate"
I often hear, "Why get involved in politics?"
"What difference can one person make?"
Well, what if George Washington had thought that way?
Or Martin Luther King, Jr.? Or Gandhi?
Never underestimate the power of good ideas and the unwavering commitment to make things better.
Hard work and persistence can move mountains
and you can be the one do it!

Mark Grimm was elected with 65% of the vote in November 2015 to represent the Carman Road/Western Avenue area of Guilderland (District 29). View map of district.
Mark hit the ground running in his first term in the Albany County Legislature. In his first six months, he visited every county department in order to be as well informed as possible and give county employees a chance to ask him questions.
Mark has cut the county tax rate each year while in office. He has kept his campaign promise to have Guilderland receive more of its fair share of county funds. He co-authored a sweeping modernization bill to make county government easier to follow. He also voted to improve benefits for verterans and protect animals. He is also leading the way to prevent onerous legislation that would harm small businesses and not-for-profits.

Work to be done...
There are challenges ahead. The legislature remains much too large (39 members). Yet, new leadership has opened the door to much reform. We must capitalize on the opportunity.
Mark will work hard to ease the tax burden, provide services more effectively and...always...look out for Guilderland!
