Young, energetic and enthusiastic, Karl Baia has served Amsterdam’s 5th Ward with pride and dedication. He understands the needs of his constituency and has never voted to increase taxes. Karl Baia’s service has helped influence a new generation to stand up and make a difference in their community.
This year Karl pledges to adhere to the State mandated 2% tax cap and is committed to reducing spending by consolidating services.
Amsterdam’s 5th Ward is full of rich cultural heritage, from its turn of the century architecture to the Mohawk River. Karl Baia needs your vote to ensure these treasures will still be around fo his 8-year-old daughter Gabriella to enjoy.
In addition to serving as 5th Ward Supervisor, Karl Baia has served our citizens on the following committees:
• Montgomery County Planning Board
• Citizen’s Review Board and Charter Review Committee
• Former Chairman of the Amsterdam Civil Service Board
• YMCA Board of Directors
• Government Study Committee focusing on consolidation
• Chairman of the Economic Development Committee
• Worked to create local jobs
Supervisor Karl has always been there for me when I needed information or wanted to voice my opinion. He cares about the 5th Ward residents on both sides of the river and truly has our backs when it comes to issues that directly affect our Ward. When the Thane administration befriended Uri Kaufamn and fought the scheduled demolition of the Chalmers Building, Karl had our backs by organizing a petition drive that helped stop Kaufman. Karl Baia was also one of the main organizers of the anti-graffiti drive that helped paint over damage done to our city buildings and homes.
Karl’s enthusiasm and willingness to stand up and make a difference for our City is commendable. Not may people of his generation have that fortitude, choosing instead to move on to other destinations. Karl chose to stay in Amsterdam and make a difference by serving on the Montgomery County Board of Supervisors.
