To the editor:
Election Day is coming. I live in Valatie so I can’t vote in the Ghent election, but if I could, Carl Quinn would have my vote. Yes, Carl is my brother but that’s not why I would vote for him. Carl Quinn has always been community-oriented. From as far back as I can remember, there was some cause he was rallying to help out with. As a pre-teen he participated in a bike-a-thon to raise money for MS, he volunteered to train a german shepherd puppy to be a service dog while he was a 4-H member and participated in SADD events throughout high school. Carl has always been eager to lend a helping hand. As an adult, he’s helped numerous members of our community by establishing a charity, Our Community Cares, that remains active locally even today. We grew up in Austerlitz. He then purchased his home 21 years ago in Ghent, where he resides today. His service record is impeccable. He cares, he’s local, and he’s not afraid to fight for his fellow community members. He stands firm in his beliefs and convictions. Carl Quinn should get your vote on Nov. 2 for Ghent Town Board.
