Plattsburgh

goals

 

TO THE EDITOR: I’m seeking to be elected as your Clinton County legislator in the City of Plattsburgh District 10 (wards 4, 5 and 6-2).

My experience in government administration has given me the privilege to be involved in projects such as the redevelopment of the base property, the expansion of CVPH and the waterfront projects.

I’ve overseen a billion dollars of local development. My experience in tourism and promotion has included membership on the Strategic Tourism Committee, fishing tournaments (with global televised events), special events and more.

Some of my social involvement has included the Wounded Warrior Project, the USO, Take a Soldier Fishing, American Heart Association and Multiple Sclerosis Society.

I strongly support the Arts Council and Strand renovation project.

My wife, Sandy, and I have been married for 36 years. We are the proud parents of Aimee Arts and Jason Perry, the father-in-law of Benjamin Arts and Jessica Perry, grandparents to Ava, Elias, Carter and Caiden.

I want my community to be affordable for my family. I want them to be proud of the history of the Plattsburgh region and to have the abundant natural resources be preserved and available for their future to enjoy.

All residents deserve to have these privileges, and I will continue to work toward that goal.

I will work with all candidates to achieve a more affordable, more desirable region for the present and the future.

My pledge is to work toward achieving these goals, be positive and respectful and to be open to constructive ideas and conversation.

war

 

TO THE EDITOR: Stay out of Syria. Get out of Afghanistan. Who appointed us the world police?

Why do we have to throw our weight around the world? Does a muscular man hit every other person he sees on the street, just because he can?
