Grimm seeks re-election

TROY – Incumbent Democrat Peter Grimm is seeking re-election with hopes to continue representing the city as a member of the Rensselaer County Legislature.

Grimm is president and a founding member of the Friends of Prospect Park, the Troy Community Food Cooperative, and the Community of the Friends of St. Patrick. He is also an organizer for the PanCAN Cancer Candlelight Vigil and has been involved with the Victorian Stroll, the Mayor’s Beautification Council, Troy in Bloom, the Piggyback Council, Rensselaer County Historical Society, the Albany Symphony and the League of Women’s Voters.

Grimm has also worked to personally spruce up the city’s war memorials for a number of years.

“I believe I have made a positive difference for Troy and would like the opportunity to continue to serve my constituents for four more years,” said Grimm.

Grimm, who has served on the legislature for four years, voted against all county tax hikes, worked to strengthen environmental protections, supported dedicated funds to boot tourism and voted to improve veterans’ benefits.

Grimm also noted his work as a proven business leader with his work as a special projects manager at Tanglewood’s “Seranak” estate. Prior to that, he was a small business owner who ran the Spyro Gyro Café and founded Old Daley Inn Catering in North Troy, which has become one of the area’s top catering operations.

Grimm has lived in the city for 50 years and is a graduate of Hudson Valley Community College.
