To the editor:
As a lifelong resident of Claverack, a former Councilwoman, and a business owner I’m writing to endorse Kippy Wiegelt for Town Supervisor and the Claverack Republican Team. I know firsthand their commitment and dedication to our town.
I thank Doug Colwell for running for Town Councilman. Doug’s background in education, years in law enforcement and his willingness to continue to serve his community will be an asset to our town.
As the new Town Hall moves forward the Claverack Republican Team is making sure that SMART principles and energy efficiency are guiding the project. They understand sustainability and fiscal responsibility and continue to research grant funding opportunities to offset cost to the taxpayer when possible.
It’s easy to make promises but attending an occasional town board meeting and working in the private sector doesn’t guarantee or qualify an ability to run a town. Claverack needs experienced, knowledgeable leaders. Leaders that understand what measures must be taken to improve quality of life, provide for our elderly, work with developers to provide affordable housing, and value local businesses.
As we continue to move through uncertain times its more important than ever that we consider experience and stability when we cast our vote.
