Letter from your Chairman

The Town of Colonie Republican Committee is committed to electing Town, County and State officials who are dedicated to enhancing the quality of life in Colonie, keeping our streets safe and making our community a more affordable place for families and seniors.

Through the hard work and determination of our committee members, we have had a number of electoral victories in recent years including: Peter Crummey, Town Supervisor, Julie Gansle, Town Clerk, the re-election of Michele Zilgme, Town Receiver of Taxes, the election of Town Board Members Rick Field, Danielle Futia and Jeff Madden and Town Justices Norm Massry and Norm Sommers.

In addition to our achievements on the Town level, the committee has helped to elect several County Legislators including: Frank Mauriello, Minority Leader of the Albany County Legislature, Todd Drake, Jennifer Whalen, Peter Tunny, Paul Burgdorf, and Patrice Lockart.

Lastly, in 2022, we were able to elect the first Republican Senator representing Colonie since the 1990’s. We are excited to work closely with Senator Jake Ashby and his team as they fight to bring needed balance to state government.

These Election Day victories would not have been possible without the continued sacrifice, support and efforts of our committee members.  As the Town of Colonie Republican Committee looks toward the next election cycle, we cannot thank our members and volunteers enough for all they have done and continue to do.

I am honored to serve as the Chairman of the Town of Colonie Republican Committee.  As chairman, my goal is to help elect Town officials who will work tirelessly to protect our quality of life here in Colonie, while supporting County and State representatives who fight back against the radical policies that have made New York a more dangerous and less affordable place to call home.

Stay healthy, and thanks for visiting our Colonie Republican webpage.

Our Mission Statement


The Colonie Republican Party envisions a vibrant, prosperous and safe Colonie defined by a strong and stable economy, active and healthy families and responsive local government that serves all people while protecting individual liberty. Part of that process includes limited taxes and only appropriate government spending so we may maintain that important balance between the sometimes conflicting needs of our family neighborhoods and our business community. As such, government is solemnly charged with the responsibility to craft long term solutions rather than short term fixes. We will hold our government responsible for securing the safety of our families, for enhancing our communities’ economy, and for promoting fairness and justice to our residents as we all work together to maintain neighborhoods and the autonomy of our Colonie community.
