BETHLEHEM With an open spot on the Bethlehem Town Board, Republican Jim Foster is putting his name in the hat for his appointment.
At the Wednesday, Dec. 9, Town Board meeting Foster, the recent Republican candidate for supervisor, addressed Supervisor John Clarkson and the rest of the board.
“As you are undoubtedly aware 49.9 percent of voters requested their desire for me to serve on the board. The collective will of nearly half our community should not be ignored,” said Foster.
Foster lost the race for supervisor by just 12 votes after absentee ballots were counted.
With Councilman Bill Reinhardt leaving Town Board to serve his newly elected role as Albany County Legislator, the Town Board is left to choose a person to fill his seat.
“This is an opportunity to unite our community and show that together we will always put our residents and their interests before political expediency,” continued the 32-year-old newcomer to Bethlehem politics.
In late November the board sent notice for applications for the seat to be submitted by Monday, Dec. 8. Including Foster’s, 25 applications were received.
“I’ve been surprised by the great number of people who have applied for the position. This is an excellent group with people with great experience in municipal government
