Albany County Democratic Party Chair Daniel McCoy said the county is behind Runion "100 percent."
Grimm said, if elected, he would work to implement a "fairness culture" that would "prohibit no-bid contracts to family members of town elected officials, apply consistency to supervisor's zoning decisions, fix problems with questionable assessments, and simplify the assessment appeal process.
"Guilderland has one of the strongest municipal work forces in the area," said Grimm. "Imagine what we could accomplish with a new supervisor who leads with inspiration and a strong work ethic."
Grimm has the backing of the Guilderland Republican Party, said Ted Danz, the party's chairman.
Danz said the committee has unanimously voted to support Grimm, along with Dave Fraterrigo for town board and Chris Aldrich for town justice.
The candidates for town positions will be announcing their candidacies individually, rather than as a slate, Danz said.
"I'm actually letting them speak for themselves," Danz added.
