Warrensburg races

Candidate for Supervisor:

Maynard D. Baker (R, Ic)

Address: 1325 Schroon River Rd., Warrensburg

Occupation: Business Owner/Licensed Funeral Director

Education: (No response.)

Age: 79

Public office now held: None

Previous public offices held: five-term, 10-year Town Supervisor; 6 years as Town Justice.

Qualifications for office: 16 years in public service; 10 years Warren County Board of Supervisors; chairman of several County committees; 10 years as town Budget Officer; founder of two successful local businesses; disabled access activist; community service volunteer with V.F.W., American Legion, Elks, and Eagles organizations; active in Adirondack Funeral Directors Association.

Leading campaign issues: High taxes and out-of-control spending. Current administration, under leadership of Supervisor Geraghty, has increased town spending over $700,000 in four short years which equates to a 25% spending increase. I will control spending much as I did during previous tenure. Opposed to sales tax increase at the county level. We must control spending and live within our means at both town and county.

What I'd accomplish if elected: Will work together with my board to control spending, lower taxes, and give all fair and equal assessments. Will work to clean and upgrade sewer lagoons and oppose unfair state mandates. Will not spend upwards of $170,000 to bill or meter water that does not meet D.O.H. standards. Will spend approximately $20,000 to install new well and close down Swan St. well. Will hold no unethical closed-door meetings. Will keep government open, honest and accessible.
