Rachelle wants to grow a green future. This will help protect the greatest asset we share — a beautiful environment that belongs to all of us. We need to keep it that way, to nurture it and maintain access to it.

She will work to create new opportunities; this will result from careful planning, a green sensibility and a progressive economic outlook. We have to take advantage of our assets to create job growth.

Please vote for Rachelle for the Democratic Primary Election noon to 9 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 10.

Because of redistricting, the Old Base residents are new constituents in Ward 1. The new polling place is Pine Harbor on New Hampshire.

Puppies fundraiser

TO THE EDITOR: There was a bottle drive held Saturday, Aug. 10, in Peru at the corner of Route 22 and Bear Swamp Road.

This was a fundraiser for care of the puppies from Northern Puppies. It was to help with vet bills, food and whatever else they needed.

We had an overwhelming response from the people of the North Country. We raised $1,212, along with a big bag of dog food someone brought.

There are so many to thank that we can’t name everybody individually. Thanks to WPTZ for televising our event to get people to come. Also, thanks to the North Country Amvets Post 87, who took in all the bottles (more than 13,000), and they were nice enough to give us 7 cents per bottle or can. And special thanks to our helpers who counted returnables and to our delivery guys who hauled them away.

It was a great turnout. Thank you, North Country.
