    Republicans and conservatives looking for a truly pro-family candidate on Primary Day, Sept. 13, will vote for Roy McDonald.

    Sen. McDonald is not only the proven friend of families in our community, he is the No. 1 leader whose dedication and vision has helped our families to a better life.

    We all know that Saratoga County is the paradigm for prosperity, good government and quality of life. What we sometimes overlook is that Roy was directly involved in almost every important improvement we have experienced here: from leading his town, Wilton, to zero local taxes for 20-plus years; to bringing good jobs to the Exit 16 distribution centers of Target and Ace Hardware; to paving the way for GlobalFoundries; to the redevelopment of Exit 15, an engine of sales tax that benefits the entire county.

    Also, he was the first local leader to establish a wildlife preserve and park for his town, an enduring legacy that improved the quality of life, raised property values and preserved open space.

    Families have benefited enormously from the high-quality employment opportunities Roy has helped bring. Paychecks, health insurance, pensions, good housing all give our citizens an opportunity to contribute volunteer time to our communities up and down the county.

    As senator, Roy has continued his dedication to the well-being of families, especially by sponsoring and seeing approved major legislation to assist individuals with disabilities.

    Sen. Roy McDonald has been doing right by our community, our families, for a long time. Let’s keep him on the job.

    Gordon Boyd
