Kidd and Pearson believe in and join Leahy’s vision for the Town of Montgomery
Montgomery, NY – June 4, 2015 - The push to unify and strengthen the Town of Montgomery is gaining momentum. Village of Maybrook Mayor Dennis Leahy has been joined in his vision to find a new direction for the Town of Montgomery by former Village of Walden Mayor Becky Pearson and Town of Montgomery Chamber of Commerce President, John Kidd. The vast contributions, backgrounds, and experiences of this group offer the community a team of candidates ready to work hard and produce results.
Pearson spent four years as mayor in Walden and was not a mere figurehead. Along with other members of the community, she refined plans for the Rail Trail as well as secured federal funds to complete the project. She’s fought hard to improve local zoning regulations and is current chairperson of the Village Zoning Board. Her roots in the community run deep, as the Phelps family has lived about the town for over 100 years. Pearson belongs to numerous service organizations and volunteers to strengthen the community. Her love for Walden and the Town is ingrained in her spirit.
John Kidd’s love for the people of the town is as long as his family’s history here. The first Kidd settlers came to the area in 1736 and each successive generation solidified the family’s position in the community. Kidd’s marketing business has greatly impacted the community for the better. Through his quarterly magazines, Kidd highlights the positives in the area while instilling a sense of pride and community spirit among the town’s residents. This professional experience allows Kidd to hone vital skills identifying needs while finding appropriate solutions which makes him an asset to the Town. Kidd thrives on bringing local residents and businesses together through his work while carrying on the legacy of his ancestors by serving the needs of the public.
Dennis, Becky, and John are a formidable team. Each has played a separate role in the community, but they share a common vision for the future of Montgomery. You’ll see this when you meet them as they want to learn your vision for the Town. Talk to them – tell them what you think. They have your best interests at heart, and together, they will make things happen for us.
