TO THE EDITOR: I am the daughter of the late Donald and Leona (Adams) Crowningshield, and I spent the first four years of my life here in Jay.
My husband, Daniel, and I returned in 1993 with our five children (Daniel, Eric, Jennifer, Kaitlyn and Brandon) to our current home on Sheldrake Road. We have lived and raised our children here over the past 21 years.
I am currently the bookkeeper at KOA campground in Wilmington, a seasonal, part-time position I have held for over eight years. I have also kept the books for my husband’s electrical contracting business, Fenton Enterprises.
I have served as an election inspector for several years. During this time, I have been able to match many names with faces, getting to know more and more of my neighbors.
I feel that I am very capable to do what is required as tax collector for the Town of Jay. I have the background, experience and desire to fulfill the role.
I will perform the duties required with kindness, courtesy and integrity. I am very proficient with computers and have a great deal of experience handling large sums of money and reconciling active bank accounts.
A few of my part-time endeavors have put me in constant contact with the public, which I have found to be quite rewarding.
I intend to personally fulfill the duties of the position of tax collector; I have no intention of appointing anyone else to do the job entrusted to me by the voting public.
I would very much appreciate your vote on Nov. 5. My name is at the very bottom of the right-hand side of the ballot: Line H, Column 11.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
TINA L. FENTON
