Missing signs

TO THE EDITOR: I just want to thank the Town of Chesterfield and Essex County Department of Public Works for their quick attention to a very important matter.

For several months, I have noticed that there have been three street signs missing in the Village of Keeseville: Church Street, Division Street and Santor Lane.

The Village of Keeseville was informed about these signs at least four months ago, if not longer, and again around a month ago, but it must have fallen on deaf ears, because nothing was done.

Being afraid of what could happen should a 911 call be made and the responders may not be knowledgeable of local streets and roads, I called the supervisor of the Town of Chesterfield and he took it upon himself to ensure the safety of the village residents on those streets.

All it took him was one phone call to Essex County DPW, and in less than three days, they replaced the three street signs. Again, thank you.

Legislators event

TO THE EDITOR: On behalf of the League of Women Voters of the Plattsburgh area, and especially the Meet Your State Legislators’ committee, we would like to express our thanks to legislators, educators, parents, esteemed student delegates, media and all who attended the Meet Your State Legislators event Saturday, Jan. 26, at Peru Central High School.

 Honored delegates chosen by their respective high schools in Clinton and Essex counties participated in an interactive presentation of a glimpse inside the New York State Legislature with Sen. Betty Little, Assemblywoman Janet Duprey and Assemblyman Dan Stec.

Two students , Nate Casey from AuSable Valley Central and Katie Woltner from Keene Valley Central School, were chosen by lottery to attend Students Inside Albany conference in Albany from April 14 to 17, where students across New York have the opportunity to see the State Legislature in session and shadow a legislator.
