Bauer seeking re-election

TROY – An At-Large city councilman will be seeking re-election this fall with hopes to continue working towards improving all areas of the city.

Hank Bauer, a two-term Republican incumbent, said he will seek the office again this year because he believes that being a member of the City Council is both an honor and a privilege.

“You are a member of a team and that team has nine members. It’s not about being a Democrat or being a Republican,” said Bauer. “The good people of Troy deserve high quality essential services and stable taxes.”

Bauer noted how many local neighborhoods had seen improvements over the past four years thanks to cooperation between the city and area residents.

“Residents, who have fought for years for a better place to live, are being joined by neighbors in achieving that goal for the first time,” said Bauer. “Together a difference is being made.”

He also explained that it was imperative for the law to work for the people and that, with their help in recent years, the city has improved its crime fighting and crime prevention.

“The council has worked hard with Mayor Tutunjian to reduce the size of city government, streamline expenses, balance budgets without tax increases, and make investments to city infrastructure, while providing quality services,” said Bauer.

Additionally, Bauer said that he was pleased to be joined on the Republican ticket this fall by fellow At-Large candidates Steve Miner and registered Democrat Keith Rogers.

“Being a member of the Troy City Council is not about being a member of the majority or minority,” said Bauer. “It is about working as a team, working with the mayor, and ultimately serving the residents of Troy.”
