On Nov. 5, please get out and vote for Michael Morales for Beekmantown Town Council.
TO THE EDITOR: It is my pleasure to write this letter of support for Peter Ensel, candidate for City Councilor in Ward 4.
I have known Peter personally and professionally for the last five to six years and believe he has the necessary background, expertise and attitude to make an excellent addition to the City of Plattsburgh’s governing body.
Many of us have known Peter as a respected member of the SUNY Plattsburgh faculty since 1988, where he teaches in the Communications Department and directs the Plattsburgh State Television Program.
I have had the opportunity to work with Peter in both of these capacities in my professional life and have always found him to be extremely committed to the students, his department and the university itself.
As a SUNY Plattsburgh graduate himself, Peter is very in tune with the problems and opportunities facing the City of Plattsburgh in the upcoming years. He is extremely community-minded, as is illustrated in his active involvement in the Plattsburgh Rotary Club, where he serves in many capacities, including a member of its Board of Directors and current sergeant-at-arms.
As a fellow Rotarian, I have found Peter to be fully engaged in local community events, non-profit organizations and the overall betterment of our area.
Peter freely gives us his time and talent to those around him. I am confident that he will be no different in the role of elected official. His genuine commitment to the Plattsburgh community is evident in all that he does.
I feel that we are very lucky to have someone of Peter’s educational background, personal integrity and varied experience willing to give his time to our great community.
