To the editor:
It is my pleasure to endorse Jim Lanning for the office of Skaneateles Village Trustee.
Jim Lanning has lived in the Village of Skaneateles for approximately 40 years. He currently serves as a member of Congresswoman Ann Marie Buerkle’s staff, and has been active with the Skaneateles Republican Committee.
During the past year I got to know Jim very well while he voluntarily provided invaluable help to me during my campaign for county legislator. Jim is an incredibly hard worker with great knowledge of the Skaneateles community and its needs.
Perhaps what is most notable about Jim, however, is that he is a very likeable “stand up” guy who is independent-minded and has a true passion for public service. Very soon after meeting him he struck me as someone who would make a fantastic elected official … and I encouraged him to seek office. I am thrilled he is doing so.
Jim Lanning is someone I am very proud to call my friend. I hope the voters of the Village of Skaneateles will cast a vote for Jim when they go to the polls on March 20.
