As one politician put it on his campaign signs, “Performance, not promises.”




Faces challenges

TO THE EDITOR: Fifteen years ago, I met the love of my life, Michael Cashman, during freshman orientation at SUNY Plattsburgh.

Michael immediately got involved with our community. He participated in countless hours of community service and continues to do so. As a result, he was invited to serve on the United Way’s Allocation Committee as a student.

I can still remember him coming back from the countless community-service events he was involved with. Michael’s love for this community was evident even then. He would often remark, and still reiterates, it is the people that make this community what it is.

I have struck gold in finding someone who wants to make the community we raise our future children in even brighter. Michael is a person who will face challenges head on and tell you like it is. He will be the first to admit when he doesn’t have the answer but will keep working until one is found.

Michael does not just talk about problems and issues but works to find solutions. He has the drive, passion, work ethic and know-how to put plans into action.

Having Michael as a member of the Plattsburgh Town Council would be a boon for our community; you would be electing a man who will work hard for this community and help it continue to fulfill its potential as a leading community in this state.

Please join me in voting for Michael Cashman on Nov. 5.




Cooperation, compromise

TO THE EDITOR: Peter Ensel is a candidate for City Council in Ward 4.

I had the opportunity of working with Peter on the City of Plattsburgh Redistricting Committee. Peter, who was chair of this committee, was charged with redistricting the voting wards in the city to balance the population in each ward.
