Hello friends! We are reviving this fundraising page for the Town Board race. We tried to create an ActBlue site but unfortunately they aren't allowed to cover our area so we are rehabbing our village campaign site here. Rest assured we will receive any money donated.
Please bear with us and thanks for your support.

More Info

Kelly is a Groton native and is finishing her first term on the Town Board. She has been an active Chair of the Groton recreation committee and serves on the Tompkins County Council of Governments (TCCOG). She has been responsive to concerns raised by voters.

She is currently employed at the Lab of Ornithology and lives on a small farm with her husband and furry friends.

Kelly Smith believes local government should be fair, inclusive, approachable, and transparent.

Faith stays busy raising her two young boys and recently started  substitute teaching at Groton Central School. Her husband works at CFCU and supports her involvement in politics.

She has been active in the community for the past six years pushing local government to get funding for vital improvements to the village.

Faith is the Chairperson for TCAction’s Policy Council and would like to further Groton’s connection with county organizations.

She grew up in a small farming community in Western NY. She grew up in a farming community that was hit hard by the recession of the 90’s, many people lost their farms, it was devastating to the community. She worries that without migrant labor, increased reliance on buying groceries at big box stores, and climate change our farmers could be in jeopardy here too, especially if another recession hits.

Having recently run for Mayor of Groton she’d like to keep her momentum going and hopes to be a voice at the Town level.
