To the editor:
I have known Jim Greenfield on a personal and business level for almost 15 years. Jim has always been accessible as a town council member and taken the time to listen to any concerns that have arisen.
Jim has been a recognized figure in responsible farming that protects our beautiful lake and surrounding watershed. I personally spoke with Jim regarding the leasing of lands for the purpose of hyrdrofracking to extract natural gas. Jim told me that he was not leasing any of the substantial land that he and his family own because he wasn’t willing to risk the dangers of such gas drilling. Knowing the amount of land involved and the price per acre paid by the gas companies, Jim and his family have walked away from millions of dollars of revenue just from the leasing of the land alone. This speaks volumes as to who Jim Greenfield is.
It is easy to talk about important issues; Jim Greenfield supports that talk with his actions and moral commitment to what is right for Skaneateles.
We need leaders who have this kind of commitment to what is right for our town.
I ask you to join me in supporting Jim Greenfield and the other Republican candidates in the upcoming election.
