To the editor:
Janet Duprey is a tireless advocate for the issues of the North Country.
You may know her through her support of families with Asperger's and autistic children. Maybe you know her through her work to bring jobs to the North Country. Maybe you know Janet from her 25 years as the Clinton County treasurer.
However your paths have crossed, you know that Janet is easy to reach, listens with an open mind, enthusiastically investigates your issue and gets the job done.
I know Janet as a tireless and involved advocate for the needs of our North Country seniors.
Janet established opened communication channels early in the development of Lake Forest Senior Living Community. She was knowledgeable about the needs of the aging, and I soon looked forward to opportunities to discuss elder housing and health care with Janet. When the need for more specialized services for those needing 24-hour assistance or with early to mid-stage memory loss became evident, Janet was pivotal in the development of Pine Harbour Assisted Living - a much-needed missing link to independent housing options and nursing home care heretofore nonexistent in rural upstate New York.
As a Pine Harbour board member, Janet's contributions were significant to the opening of Pine Harbour Assisted Living. She got the job done.
As county treasurer, she worked as comfortably with individuals on issues affecting their personal lives as she did with members of both parties in the Legislature on issues affecting the fiscal health of Clinton County. She got the job done.
As our representative in Albany, Janet understands the needs of rural upstate. She GETS THE JOB DONE for the North Country.
On Tuesday, Nov. 6, please vote for Janet Duprey. She gets the job done.
