Josh, yes I am currently on the Amherst Town Board. The fact that you haven’t heard of me is an unfortunate side effect of my not seeking publicity while in office. If you would like to find out about what I have done while on the board, I would encourage you to speak with members of the Government Study Committee, Recycling & Waste Committee, Glen Park Joint Board, Energy Conservation Citizens Advisory Committee, Amherst Fire Chiefs’ Association, as well as the many other committees and departments that I have served as liaison to. You could also speak with the hundreds of residents that I have helped deal with public safety, code enforcement and highway issues over the past four years but they would be much harder for you to identify. Although my accomplishments have mostly been behind the scenes I have played an active role in helping to craft budgets that have reduced taxes each of the past three years without any significant cuts in services and have also chaired the Eggertsville Task Force which generated many improvements in services and safety at low cost to the Town. To find out more, please feel free to visit sandersforamherst.com, my Facebook page Councilmember Steven Sanders or email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Behind the scenes???? That’s what we want in government, politicians working in secret. I do know that your work in public has been to ignore residents and do Barry’s bidding. Maybe DR.Barry can give you a spine transplant because you have none of your own.
