Callahan thanks voters for support
Thank you, thank you to all of the Skaneateles residents who recently supported me throughout the mayoral race.
Each candidate conveys their own leadership style during a campaign, whether it be through their literature, signs, answers to media questionnaires or by their example when dealing with the public. My spirit of initiative was most evident to those observing the simplicity and consistency of my engaging each person who generously spoke of their issues and concerns.
Democracy is a gift that our forefathers formulated for us. When implemented, people execute this right as a citizen to choose his or her next leader ... and Skaneateles residents did that.Thank you for allowing me to give you a choice. Thank you for participating with me, sharing your time, your thoughts, your questions. Thank you for standing with me whether it was at informational forums, reading the articles in the newspapers, or giving me of your precious time as we would review my literature.
You see... I really did win! I met new residents, reacquainted with many, which really raised this level of engaging the political process, allowing me to accomplish a goal... giving you a choice, a choice to elect a public servant to represent your interests. Truly, I wish the best to the new elected officials.
Thank you Skaneateles for a successful election
To the editor:
I would like to thank the community for making our recent village election such a success. The voter turnout was very high. There was a great deal of enthusiasm and spirited debate. I congratulate Mary Sennett and Marc Angelillo on their successful campaigns for the Village Board of Trustees. They are both well qualified individuals who will represent us in a professional manner. I would like to congratulate Marty Hubbard on his successful bid to serve as mayor again. Marty brings a wealth of experience and knowledge with him. I believe our village government is in good hands. I also commend Patty Callahan for having the courage to run for mayor. Uncontested elections are never good for the community.
