Letters: A fond farewell to Mayor Thomas J. Dougherty

To the editor:

I am writing on behalf of the Town of Cazenovia Democratic Committee to thank Mayor Tom Dougherty for his years of dedicated service to the Village of Cazenovia and our entire community.

I had the distinct honor of working with Mayor Tom during my four years as Cazenovia Town Supervisor and appreciated his calm and thoughtful stewardship.

Under his watch, the town and village have found ways to collaborate and share services, consider the support to CACDA, adoption of the joint town and village comprehensive plan, the creation of the Watershed Council, and the substantial revisions to our municipal zoning laws. We will all benefit as well from his commitment to improving storm water management and restoring Carpenters Barn.

Beyond the list of accomplishments, and there are many more beyond the few mentioned here, is an exemplary public servant who has dedicated countless hours to the community over the years.

You have set a high bar for the next mayor. Thank you, Tom.

Liz Moran
