TO THE EDITOR: On a positive note, have you seen Port Henry lately? Well, let me tell you, we are looking good.
Our Mountain Lakes Basket Store has come alive and is fantastic.
Lucy, our incredible entrepreneur, has made old Aubuchon building look amazing and thriving.
Our own Julie Garcia, attorney, has a handsome new office.
Our Chamber of Commerce is heading in the direction of being an art gallery.
Sagans windows have been dressed up and the Bell store, too.
Artists have enlivened their studio storefronts with twinkling lights.
To all of our businesses — cheers!
TO THE EDITOR: I would like to thank the voters of the Town of Black Brook for giving me the opportunity to serve you again for the next four years.
I will continue working to keep taxes down but still give you the services you deserve.
It has been both a pleasure and a learning experience these past eight years. I look forward to the next four.
I am always available to discuss town matters with you.
Again, thank you for voting.
