Committed to taxpayers

TO THE EDITOR: I am writing in support of my husband, Paul Lamoy, for the office of town councilor in the Town of Plattsburgh.

My husband has committed himself to working for taxpayers. He has missed only one meeting of the Town Council in the five years he has served. A commitment like that is exactly what we need in local government.

My husband has taken on tough issues, and his own political party, if it was in the best interest of you, the taxpayer. He does not dodge the difficult problems but rather faces them head on.

One of my husband's opponents has claimed he is a former Zoning Board of Appeals member in the town. What he does not tell you is he was not put back on the ZBA at the end of his term.

Please join me in support of my husband, Paul Lamoy, on Nov. 5.

Common sense

TO THE EDITOR: I would like to encourage everyone to get out and vote the Nov. 5.

One of the most important positions up for a vote is the Town Council in Plattsburgh. While this may not be the glamorous job that gets the news attention, this is where the real work is done, and no one does more than Paul Lamoy.

Our town is growing, and we need leaders, to encourage this growth, while keeping track of the bottom line. We need to keep our town moving forward, with good-paying jobs for our children.

Paul is dedicated, experienced and working every day for all of us. In five years, he has missed only one Town Council meeting; now that's representation.

His common-sense approach is exactly what we need in this economy. He is always searching for ways to save the taxpayers' money.
