Amsterdam Mayor Michael Villa Discusses Run For Second Term
Amsterdam Mayor Michael Villa is running for a second term. The Republican is running on a platform that asks voters to consider changes in the Montgomery County city over the last four years.
He’s highlighting improvements in city finances, investments in infrastructure, and the city’s receipt of a $10 million Downtown Revitalization Initiative grant from New York State. WAMC's Lucas Willard sat down with Villa, who started by speaking about how his administration has worked to fulfill a campaign promise: addressing neighborhood blight.
