Democratic candidates C. Todd Godlewski and current board member Bob Bailey are hoping to get their message of real progress out to Glenville residents.
Bailey, a four-term member of the Glenville Town Board, said voters made a change four years ago to vote in Democrats, a trend that he hopes will continue next Tuesday, Nov. 6, when voters take to the polls.
"There have been changes in how the town board operates, and we have accomplished a great deal since I took office in January 2004. The town board must act as a body to accomplish anything, and consequently, I do not take sole credit for these many accomplishments. I am proud to have helped bring them to residents, and I have kept my promise to improve the way the town conducts its business," said Bailey.
Bailey, who has a bachelor's of science from Clarkson and a master's of science from Northwestern University, works as an electrical engineer at the Knolls Atomic Power Lab in Niskayuna. He is also the engineering manager at the naval nuclear training prototype for the lab site.
Bailey was active in the Army Reserves, serving as captain, and he served locally with the 464th Combat Engineer Battalion as a communications officer, where he was responsible for all aspects of telephone and radio communications during training and mobilization.
Some of the civic projects he has worked on include the Freedom Park amphitheater, the Niskayuna High School athletic fields and a ball field in Schenectady's Central Park.
A resident of Glenville since 1974, Bailey and his wife, Marianne, have two daughters, Allison and Meredith.
Bailey, 57, said he and his wife have supported and continue to support Girl Scouts, Burnt-Hills Ballston Lake Girls Recreational Softball, the BH-BL Friends of Music, the BH-BL Parent Teachers Association, and the Burnt Hills Community Human Services.
