Claudia Braymer for NY state Assembly
To the editor:
Claudia Braymer has my vote to represent our 114th District at the New York State Assembly. Why Claudia, you ask?
As a Warren County resident and member of the Queensbury Climate Smart Communities Committee, I appreciate the work that Claudia has accomplished as an environmental lawyer in Glens Falls, and as Warren County supervisor. But her interests and concerns span the North Country with the need for broadband access for children to be able to attend school online, and for the countless small businesses, that are dependent on seasonal tourism.
Many of us moved to the Adirondacks, or grew up here, and delight in the outdoors. We ski and snowshoe in winter, and hike in summer, and kayak and swim in its clear lakes. I love to be on the Hudson River in my kayak, watching a blue heron alight and soar, alight and soar. I love to be out on Lake Luzerne and watch the loons swimming and diving and calling their mournful call.
We still have our clear lakes because of environmental legislative actions that reduced the acid rain and eastward blowing pollution, and reduced industrial toxic chemicals such as mercury that were killing trees and contaminating the lakes, the fish and the wildlife.
As a member of the New York state Assembly, representing the 114th District (that includes Warren and Essex counties and parts of Saratoga and Washington counties), Claudia Braymer will be able to use her skills as an environmental lawyer to advocate and arbitrate issues in the Assembly to benefit our region and protect our best interests. She knows to look at many facets of issues, and is known and respected in Warren County for her non-partisan attitude.
For these reasons, I support Claudia Braymer, and will vote for her in the election on Nov. 3.
