TO THE EDITOR: It is my pleasure to endorse Colin Read for county legislator, District 4.
I have known Colin personally and professionally for nearly a decade and believe he has the background, experience and strength of character to be an exceptional county legislator.
In addition to a PhD in economics, a law degree and master’s in business and taxation, Colin has taught economics and finance for more than 30 years. He is a professor of economics at SUNY Plattsburgh and has served as past dean of the School of Business and Economics.
As an active member of the community, he has served as past president of Plattsburgh Rotary Club, as a director on various local boards and as the driving force behind the establishment of the City of Plattsburgh’s First Weekends.
A co-founder of the Vision2Action group and local entrepreneur, Colin Read has proven his dedication to the growth and development of the area. Colin’s numerous columns in the Press-Republican have offered sage advice on topics ranging from secondary education to international, national and regional economic issues.
We are fortunate to have an individual like Colin Read, who possesses such a unique combination of intellect and experience, willing to serve in a leadership role.
His focus has been on revitalizing the local community and finding ways to retain young, talented individuals who will further contribute to the community.
He understands the valuable local assets that our area has to offer and his positive attitude has been dedicated to building a more healthy and vibrant local economy.
I feel we have an opportunity to strengthen our county government and fully endorse Colin Read in his election to county legislator, District 4.
