Regardless of what side you voted for, Saratoga Millennials agree that it was certainly an exciting presidential race that created great discussion over the current direction of the United States.

One close friend of Saratoga Country Millennials is Clifton Park Town Supervisor Philip Barrett.

We recently spoke with the longest serving supervisor in Clifton Park history, and asked him his thoughts on the results of the presidential election and how it affects future generations.

Here is what he had to say:

“Every four years, Americans have a responsibly to make a choice that will profoundly affect the path of our country. Turnout on Election Day was high in Clifton Park this year, and it was great to see so many people participate in the voting process,” Clifton Park Town Supervisor Phil Barrett said.

“Our country faces a wide range of foreign and domestic issues in the coming years, particularly the economy, with rising federal government spending and an approaching fiscal cliff.

At the same time, our soaring national debt equates to $141,000 per American taxpayer – a number that will only increase if these spending patterns continue.

That is a burden I am not willing to place on future generations and I hope our leaders in Washington can work together to reverse this alarming trend without decimating our military or national security.”
