For too long now, Gloversville has been on a slippery slope. When industry left, so did the families that relied on it. When our children graduate from high school, so does the potential to lead this city. A city cannot grow without real leadership, real results and a drive to make things happen. This November, Gloversville residents have the opportunity to restore their city's name, rebuild its infrastructure and allow the rebirth of a vibrant city ready to prosper.
The involvement of six individuals initially in the race to become mayor of Gloversville is a testament to what the city can become, but it takes more than putting your name in the hat to deliver the change in which residents and businesses need. For more than 30 years, Dirk Myers has been a community leader who doesn't accept the status quo, a business leader whose businesses have grown under his leadership, and a visionary who sees how to fix the city's issues.
Dirk's presence can be felt across the Northeast - from Boston to Albany, from Schenectady to Philadelphia. Every organization he's been a part of has grown due to his tenacity and dedication to getting the job done.
A city like Gloversville can be that shining city on a hill, to paraphrase Ronald Reagan. With Dirk Myers, not only will the city shine, but it'll be the beacon of the region.
