Randy Walker is not new to politics. He’s served on the local school board, which was an important experience for him; and also served on the Richmond Town Board for several years recently. Now though, he sets his sights on the job of Town Supervisor. As he runs, the focus of his campaign is on long-term planning and spending. He says it’s something that the Town Board has lacked; and now the State Comptroller’s Office has weighed in, giving guidance on how much should be spent, and how much should be saved.
Walker discusses his philosophy of governing, as well as politics in a small community that is driven by a shrinking population. He also discusses the plentiful natural resources that the Town possesses; and the unique opportunity to drive an expansion in the area of recreation.
