To the editor:
I enthusiastically encourage fellow Town of Kinderhook residents to vote for Melissa Miller for Town Board, given her understanding of financial operations, demonstrated ability to fulfill the responsibilities entrusted to her, and her enthusiasm for communication with constituents.
Melissa has already completed training modules in Town Finance, Town Budgets, and Rules and Responsibilities, and has researched municipal requirements under the Open Meetings Law and the need to comply with that Law.
Serving as Treasurer of the Ichabod Crane PTA for two years, Melissa knows the importance of handling other people’s money so that the goals for which support was given are achieved to the greatest extent possible.
As President of the Town Dog Park, she and her husband, Michael, developed and maintain communication channels that keep the Town Dog Park family always in the loop. News about vaccine clinics, common canine illnesses that may be going around, and other dog-related topics are provided to all. Notices of upcoming meetings are not just posted on Facebook, they’re emailed, texted and posted on the Park bulletin page so everyone has a chance to participate. Imagine having Town information right at your web-connected fingertips!
I also encourage Kinderhook residents to elect the other Kinderhook United candidates: Matt Nelson for Supervisor, and Jill Mescia for Town Board. Together, Melissa, Matt and Jill can lead the Town from being a place that some might describe as “just okay,” to a place we can enjoy as better than best.
