State Senator Jim Tedisco, Congresswoman Elise Stenfanik and Assemblywoman Marybeth Walsh have publicly shown their support for Milton Republicans, notably Scott Ostrander, candidate for Town Supervisor.
Ostrander and his team will provide “strong, fiscally responsible and accountable leadership on behalf of taxpayers in Milton and continue to protect the town’s high quality of life,” Tedisco said.
Stefanik said “”The people of Milton deserve strong leadership that will truly represent our families and small businesses. Scott is a hardworking small business owner and has long demonstrated his commitment to the public through 30 years of honorable service as a police officer. Scott Ostrander has once again answered the call to serve. I support Scott for Milton Town Supervisor, and I look forward to working with him to build a stronger, more prosperous North Country.”
“I am confident that under the new leadership of Scott Ostrander as Town Supervisor, Frank Blaisdell and John Frolish as Town Councilmen and Tim Brown as Town Justice the Town of Milton will continue to flourish. In their new roles, the members of this strong team will bring the great experience, ideals and determination that the residents and families in the Milton community deserve,” said Walsh.
Ostrander is in a face-off with Barbara Kerr for Town Supervisor.
“I’m appreciative they looked at both candidates for Town Supervisor and am grateful for their vote of confidence,” said Scott Ostrander a current Town Board member.
The budding issue in Milton is the budget, which both candidates have vastly different proposals in which they feel best to remedy it. Kerr wants the town to tighten their belt straps and cut spending, whereas Ostrander wants to leave the balancing of the budget to the public.
