Bill Reinhardt, the Democratic candidate, has been hand-picked by Supervisor John Clarkson. To that end, I question his ability to be an independent voice who answers to taxpayers rather than political bosses. At the candidate’s debate prior to the Democratic primary, Mr. Reinhardt pointed to Supervisor John Clarkson as his “leader”. Our officials are elected - not anointed - and this type of behavior underscores the need for a more balanced town board.
Again, we have a unique opportunity on Election Day to change the course of direction we take in this town by firmly rejecting policies that have resulted in higher taxes and one-party domination. That’s why I urge you to vote for Jeremy Martelle for Bethlehem Town Board.
