Southworth running for re-election

She plans to run a community-driven campaign, something Southworth said she has done before and is a pillar of the way she approaches her current position.

"My campaign will be very active, door-to-door and outreach to the community. There will be some fundraising because you can't run a campaign without money," said Southworth.

According to the Ballston Democratic Committee's website, a campaign kick-off party fundraiser open to the public was planned for March 22.

Making herself available to residents 24/7 is something Southworth has stressed during her time in office and she considers it one thing that sets her apart from many other government figures.

"My record speaks for itself. I have given up practicing pharmacy to do this job full-time, which means I'm here at town hall an exceptional amount of time and am always available in my office or by phone," said Southworth. "I've been very accessible to the residents."

Southworth maintains that residents can reach her on her cell phone at 441-6548.

So far, Southworth said she hasn't heard of anybody who has officially challenged her for the seat.
