To the editor:
It is my pleasure to officially endorse Bill Owens for Congress. Bill's intelligence, integrity and work ethic make him the right choice for Congress.
Our elected officials must work together for the good of all of the people. Congressman Owens record shows that he is a true moderate who is willing to work across party lines in the best interest of his constituents. Congressman Owens (D) worked with Congressman Gibson (R) to host the Federal Agricultural Committee in Saranac Lake, allowing local farmers to have input in the upcoming federal Farm Bill.
Bill works closely with businesses to promote jobs across the congressional district. He has been a valued partner with Canadian companies that seek to set up shop this side of the Canadian border. The congressman is a tireless advocate working hard to fill unfilled jobs, working with our local schools to make sure our students are prepared to meet the needs of local businesses.
Bill Owens traveled to Newcomb to give the commencement address to the handful of students in this remarkable little school. This speaks volumes about his commitment to all of our communities irrespective of their size.
The congressman is helping our retired veterans and also with current military personnel and their families. Bill is engaged with our troops just returning stateside from overseas. As a veteran himself, Bill never fails to acknowledge the sacrifices our military make every day.
Congressman Owens is very responsive to my office inquiries. Bill has responded to me regarding concerns from our businesses, military, farmers and constituents in general with tough issues that can't be addressed at the state level.
Congressman Owens is a proven leader. He is non-partisan, honest, smart and has a genuine concern for the needs of the people in his congressional district.
This letter is in support of Dan Stec for New York State Assembly. I have had the pleasure of knowing Dan for many years and recommend him to fill the seat I have had the pleasure of serving in for the past ten years.
Dan Stec served in the United States Navy with pride and returned to his hometown to give back to the community. Dan is a family man who respects the values that make America so great. He is a Clarkson graduate and is smart and energetic. He recently gained the honor of conquering all of the Adirondack High Peaks!
Dan is smart, energetic, engaged with his constituency and willing to work together to find solutions to tough problems. His work with local businesses, schools, hospitals and his attention to constituents make him the right choice.
While serving as town supervisor of Queensbury Dan returned budget fund balances to the taxpayers multiple times. This is but one example of his commitment to lower taxes and smaller government. His genuine concern for the people he represents is evident in the work he has already done.
Dan understands the complex issues facing businesses struggling to remain viable in the Adirondack Park. He works hard to make sure businesses are not bogged down with overregulation. He works hard every day to maintain the pristine quality of Lake George. As chairman of the Board of Supervisors, he recommended funding to help combat invasives on Lake George.
Without a doubt, Dan will hit the ground running in Albany. His knowledge of government, his concern for the taxpayer and his devotion to family will make him an outstanding representative in Albany.
