The New York State Conference of Mayors (NYCOM) collected essays from eighth grade students in New York State to participate in NYCOM’s third annual essay contest addressing the topic, “If I Were Mayor, I Would….”

Katie’s essay was chosen for Honorable Mention from over 1100 essay submissions!

Some of what she wrote:
“If I were Mayor, I would advocate for municipal projects that give citizens of Saratoga more ways to be active. This is a great city with great people, so keeping this city and its people healthy is my job as Mayor. I want everyone to have the best resources for a more active lifestyle.
One of the best places to exercise for all ages in Saratoga is the Recreational Center. As Mayor, I would work towards building a second center.”
