There’s a world of difference between a politician and a public servant. And with the growing divide that’s cutting through the heart of America, it seems more and more that public office needs more servants than showpeople. That’s what has driven Benjamin Geller to take on the privilege and challenge of running for Dutchess County Legislature in New York’s 4th District.
The political climate has been anything but encouraging amidst these challenging times. Ben Geller hopes to bring a new spirit and passion to public governance as issues and clashing opinions that spark fire continue to ravage the government. What Geller seeks isn’t a party agenda or personal enrichment, but only to serve people.
All of Benjamin Geller’s background shows that he has no vested interest as he runs for public leadership. Currently working as an Emergency Medical Technician for an advanced life support agency handling ambulance services, Ben’s life has all but been a massive manifestation of the heart to serve. Geller has spent time in the western parts of Africa performing clinical work for the unreached. He has also worked in Dutchess County’s vaccine center, providing a lending hand in vaccination efforts and operations.
Recently, Benjamin has announced his intention of running for Dutchess County Legislature after being asked by leadership to shoot for a chair in public office. “My public service background and humanitarian work have exposed me to the needs of the people I seek to represent in New York,” shared Ben Geller. “New Yorkers work hard. They are passionate. They are tough. They deserve to have their taxes lowered, have elected officials who have their best interests at heart and officials who have a vision of the future.”
Close to Ben’s heart as well is the growing mental health crisis in America as more counts of depression, mental disorders, and even suicide continue to grow amidst the health pandemic. Even before Ben Geller begins his journey in public service, he has resolved to set his aim high. “I want to start a revolution of waking up America and starting the conversation that brings healing to our nation,” Geller added. On the political divide that has split America into two factions, Ben believes that what will truly bring change and revival to the United States is a desire to serve one another despite political affiliation. Hence, Ben seeks and promises to help both sides of the political spectrum.
As Ben prepares and begins initial campaigns, he has already received multiple endorsements from previous and existing leaders in position, including Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro, Dr. Gina Loudon, Former MO Senator John Loudon, US Congressional Candidate Kevin Surdi, Former IN Representative Peggy Welch, NY Senator Sue Serino, Dutchess County Legislator Gregg Pulver, Dutchess County Legislator Will Truitt, Dutchess County Legislator Joseph Cavaccini, Hyde Park Town Council Candidate Nicole Noakes, Broome County Legislator Scott Baker, Franklin County Legislator Andrea Dumas and many others.Ben has devoted every chapter of his professional life to serving people, and he hopes to continue that streak as he pursues the chance at Dutchess County Legislature.
