Chairman Brandi: “Tim Coll is indisputably qualified for this position. Tim will bring his 30-plus years of law enforcement and leadership experience with the FBI to repair and restore the toxic environment that is poisoning the public safety department under the current Commissioner.”
Tim Coll is one of the most qualified candidates to ever seek the position of Commissioner of Public Safety. Tim has over 30 years of law enforcement and leadership experience, serving as a special agent with the FBI and leading the Joint Terrorism Task Force based in Albany. During his career, Tim served our country while deployed to Iraq on a special assignment, tasked with recovering American soldiers who had been kidnapped by enemy forces. Like many of us, Tim has observed the utter dysfunction coming out of the Department of Public Safety under its current Commissioner and was concerned about the toxic effects that this leadership has had on department morale and the ability of the police and fire departments to hire and retain the best of the best. Tim is running to restore competence and respect to the crucial role of Commissioner of Public Safety. An avowed political moderate, Tim is a registered Democrat but received the unanimous and enthusiastic endorsement of the Saratoga Springs Republican Committee. The Committee is proud to put politics aside to support a candidate as qualified and motivated to serve our City as Tim is.
Chairman Brandi asks: “the Democratic Committee would not even let Mr. Coll address them because he was in discussions with myself and the Republican Committee, how do our residents benefit from this partisan nonsense?”
