Vandenburgh running in District 1

Kay Biski Vandenburgh is running for the District 1 seat on the Rensselaer County Legislature.
The Republican said the perspective of a businesswoman and mother would be useful assets on the Legislature.
"I have experience managing a business, making payrolls and planning and growing a business. At the same time, I have the perspective of a mother who is involved in the community and who wants to have quality services provided," said Vandenburgh.
For the past decade, she has helped manage Pip’s tavern with her husband Kevin.
Along with her business and private sector experience, Vandenburgh said she would draw on her past work at a group home caring for adults with special needs in ensuring seniors, veterans and youths receive needed services.
"I am not running as a politician. I am a mother and a businesswoman who wants to make a difference in the community and believe I can make that difference in the county Legislature," said Vandenburgh.
Born and raised in Troy, she has helped organize fundraising events for the Lansingburgh Boys and Club and is also involved in youth baseball and Pop Warner in Lansingburgh. Pip’s is a sponsor in the Lansingburgh Independent Baseball League and basketball league at St. Augustine’s.
"Kay has great experience as a businesswoman, and knows the difficulties facing taxpayers and private business in the state. We are very excited about having her join the County Legislature and making Rensselaer County and Troy a better place to live and work," said Chairman of the Legislature Neil J. Kelleher.
Kay and her husband Kevin live on Ninth Avenue and are the parents of three sons.
