Cazenovia To the editor:
This has been a positive and serious campaign season in Cazenovia, which befits the importance of the decisions we face.
I am writing to share the reasons I believe that Tom Clarke is the better choice for town supervisor. I know from first-hand experience that it takes a tremendous amount of time and focus to be an effective leader of the town and an active advocate in Wampsville.
Tom Clarke has the time, experience and focus to do the job well. He will take on the details of crafting the annual budget, not delegate it to others. He will be available to town staff and residents during the day, restoring office hours and improving the overall efficiency of services. Clarke has experience in county government and has earned the respect of his peers.
Relationships are important - members of the Board of Supervisors make decisions affecting the entire county; at times, these decisions have impacts that differ from town to town. Sales tax redistribution is an obvious example.
Cazenovia needs a representative who understands details, focuses on outcomes and builds trust and confidence among his (or her) peers. I urge you to vote for Tom Clarke for the long term benefit of our community.
