Guilderland should have a fair assessment process.
The typical homeowner is assessed at or
near the full value of their home. Many
properties are assessed well below their
full value, making the average homeowner
pay more than their fair share. All properties
should be assessed at their fair value.
After the 2005 revaluation, the Grievance
Day process was botched, and hundreds of
residents waited around for hours. The
grievance process should be handled better.
Guilderland should provide better services to residents.
The pool at Tawasentha Park is rundown,
and our town officials are not providing
services comparable to what we see in other
towns. Parents take their kids to The Crossings
in Colonie, or take them swimming at town
pools in Clifton Park.
Guilderland officials are careless with our money.
The Guilderland Town Board has been spending
money like crazy, dramatically increasing our
taxes, with nothing to show for it. They
hide their excesses in budgets that are not
publicly accessible. This secrecy has to
stop. People have a right to know how the
Town is spending our money.

After law school Warren taught English in Hiroshima, Japan, for a year. He came back in 1995 and married his first and only wife Heather. They first lived in Oxford Heights Apartments and then bought their current home on Suzanne Court in 1999. Warren and Heather have two daughters, ages 2 and 5. The oldest attends Guilderland schools.
Warren started off as a trial lawyer for Allstate in Latham in 1996. In 2000 he was hired by the court system as a Supreme Court law clerk. Then in 2003, Warren opened The Redlich Law Firm on Western Avenue in Guilderland, moving to Washington Avenue Extension in 2006. Working with his brother Steve, Warren has also founded a separate business, SpinJ Corporation, which builds and maintains law-related websites including their Traffic Court directory. The first court on the site was, of course, Guilderland Town Court.
