  • Support Ethics Reform: Cleaning up Albany is the number one priority. Public officials convicted of felonies should lose their pensions; term limits for elected officials should be adopted; and state spending should be transparent.
  • Fight for Middle-Class Families: Middle-class families can be helped by lowering property taxes, improving public education, lowering the cost of higher education, and ensuring that jobs can grow and flourish here in our region.
  • Ensure Upstate NY is Fairly Represented: Upstate needs a strong voice in the Assembly to ensure our fair share of investments for our communities and infrastructure and to stand up for our treasured 2nd Amendment rights and constitutional freedoms.

Mary Beth Walsh, an attorney, strong advocate for children, families, and a proud Saratoga County business owner, is running for the New York State Assembly to continue to fight for our values and families.

 

Mary Beth has the experience to lead our community, having served in a variety of leadership positions in local and county government, including former Councilwoman in the Town of Ballston, Saratoga County Industrial Development Agency, Saratoga County Ethics Advisory Council, and Saratoga County Autism Council.

 

As a small-business owner herself, Mary Beth knows the difficulties and challenges of running a business in upstate New York, including heavy taxation, government rules and regulations, as well as burdensome state laws.

 

Mary Beth currently works in her own private practice and as an Attorney for the Town of Edinburg. She has been a practicing attorney for over 25 years, and most recently served as Assistant County Attorney in Saratoga County. As a wife to husband Jim and mother of 6 in a blended family, Mary Beth is very aware of the challenges facing our families today.

 

Mary Beth Walsh is endorsed by the Republican, Conservative, Independence, and Reform parties.

  • Assemblyman James Tedisco
  • Senator Hugh Farley, Senator Kathleen Marchione and Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin
  • Republican, Independence, Conservative and Reform Parties
  • New York State Rifle and Pistol Association and the NRA
  • The Public Employees Federation

My political philosophy is deeply rooted in a collaborative approach. I know that through listening first and gathering information, we can develop solutions to the greatest problems facing our state and communities.

 

The love for our communities doesn’t belong to one party or another. I want to work with and listen to all constituents and will work across the aisle to accomplish the goals and desires of my district.

 

I believe in a smaller government. We can achieve that by ensuring the people have a bigger voice in their government and reducing the influence of special interests. A smaller, community-based government is going to be most effective for upstate New York.

  • Taxes: We need to lower property taxes. We can do this by forcing the State to pay for costs and fees associated with Medicaid. This is a commonsense solution that would result in an immediate 50-60% decrease in your County Property Taxes.
  • Jobs: We have witnessed the success of downtown Schenectady and Malta through the forming of public/private alliances. When Government and Business work together, the results benefit the people. I want to bring this formula to the Assembly District
  • Education: The cost of college is out of control. I support reduced SUNY tuition for achieving high school students who perform community service and pledge to remain in NY post graduation.
