Fleming is running for Legislature

A retired Troy firefighter is running for a District 1 seat on the county Legislature.
Mark Fleming joined the Troy Fire Department in 1977, was promoted to lieutenant in 1984, captain in 1986 and battalion chief in 1996. He retired in 2006.
“I proudly served the City of Troy for over 29 years in the Fire Department and believe my wide experience during those years has provided me with insight into the many issues related to public safety,” said the Democrat. “I advocate a pro-active approach — seeking to anticipate problems before they arise rather than reacting after the fact. I’m eager to work with others on both the short-term and long-term planning that will keep our citizens safer.”
Fleming has coached basketball for the Sacred Heart CYO team and held adult leadership position in Cub Scout Pack 15 and Boy Scout Troup 520. He is also an active member of Sacred Heart Parish.
He is a 1973 Troy High graduate and attended Hudson Valley Community College. He and his wife reside in Troy and have two sons.
District 1 includes the City of Troy. There are six representatives on the Legislature and all candidates run at large with the six receiving the highest number of votes getting elected.
