Honest, intelligent

TO THE EDITOR: You are lucky if you live in Ward 1 in the City of Plattsburgh because you have the opportunity to elect a remarkable person to represent you.

Her name is Rachelle Armstrong, and she is honest, eager, highly intelligent and more than able to represent you.

Rachelle Armstrong will not be influenced or corrupted by special interests, greed or promises she cannot keep.

She will represent Ward 1 with honor, dignity, energy and great, good humor. She will listen to you and focus on your needs, not hers. You will be represented by someone with diligence, devotion and absolutely worthy of your trust.

I have known Rachelle Armstrong for more than 25 years. I have great hope whenever I think of her, and so should you.




Carpenter tourney

TO THE EDITOR: The eighth-annual Brian T. Carpenter Memorial Golf Tournament was hosted at the Moriah Country Club on Aug. 3.

The enthusiasm and support of all involved made this a fun and fabulous success.

Proceeds from the event go toward funding of the Brian T. Carpenter Memorial Scholarship and, new this year, a portion goes towards raising funds to bring an Angel of Hope Monument to the Lower Champlain Valley area.

Everyone’s participation is a great tribute to Brian’s memory. We thank you all for your support.

The event is successful due to the help of all who volunteer before and during the tournament. Thank you: Steve and Carrie Popp, Kathy Wagstaff, Anna, Jim and Mike Mayhood, Julie Ida, Jo Mydlarz, the Russos, the McGraths, Rick Carpenter, the Bradfords, the Castillo families, Kate LaVigne, Jared Hammond, Denise Carpenter.
