Perry’s achievements

TO THE EDITOR: I am a tournament angler from out of state who has been fishing Lake Champlain, mostly from Plattsburgh, for more than a decade.

I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and befriending Rick Perry. Rick told me of a goal he had of one day having a first-class boat ramp with ample parking for all to enjoy.

Through his efforts, the City of Plattsburgh can now boast of having a first-class boat ramp with the capability of hosting world-class fishing events.

Rick’s tireless efforts helped take an area of the city next to the sewage treatment plant and worked with city and state departments and agencies to achieve that goal. Today, myself and hundreds of anglers contribute to the sales-tax revenue and commerce of the Plattsburgh/ Lake Champlain region. Rick has been the face of Plattsburgh to the tournament angler community.

Rick Perry cares about the City of Plattsburgh, its residents and guests. He has given the City of Plattsburgh something to be proud of for years to come.

When I heard Rick was running for public office, I wanted to share my thoughts.

Support Rick Perry.
