TO THE EDITOR: I strongly support the nomination and election of Peter Ensel for city councilor for Ward 4.
I have known Peter and his family for the entire 25 years they have resided in the North Country. Peter possesses outstanding communication and organizational skills, which will serve him very well as a City Council member.
Over the years, Peter has invested himself in many aspects of city community service, which has enhanced his knowledge of city benefits and city needs.
He understands the importance of working in a collaborative manner with many different points of view to find the very best resolve for whatever concern may arise. He would continue to do so as city councilor.
We have spoken on many occasions about helping to sustain a “positive vision” for the City of Plattsburgh — improving city administrative efficiencies, expanding cultural and recreational opportunities for all residents and always seeking new economic developments aimed at future tax stabilization for all homeowners and business owners.
Peter will make a positive impact with city governance, which will result in positive outcomes for all.
Peter Ensel is a sincere and trustworthy person who would serve well as city councilor.
Look closely at this candidate; he has my vote of support on Election Day.
TO THE EDITOR: Colin Read, my friend and colleague, is running for the Clinton County Legislature in Area 4.
I have known Colin through the many boards and organizations we have served. We were panelists on Mountain Lake PBS’s “Business Affairs” program for more than five years. Colin always understood whatever topic we were discussing, whether it was an issue facing the North Country or the ramifications of policies and actions at the state, national and international level.
While serving together on the Glens Falls National Bank Board, I observed how he earned the respect of regional and corporate board members, and he is one of the strongest supporters of the North Country community.
