49th Lake Placid Classic thanks

To the editor: On Oct. 12, the 49th annual Lake Placid Classic Half Marathon and 10K was held. This year’s event was the largest in its 49-year history, with over 710 entries. Many of the participants were first-time visitors to our community, experiencing a brilliant fall day. I would ...

Ellis is smart, patient and works to build consensus

To the editor: I wish to tell you about the wonderful woman, Lindy Ellis, that I have been with for over 43 years. We met in college when she was one of only 12 women in the first class allowing women into what had been, for 100 years, an all-male engineering school. A woman who, when she ...

Garcia knows the North Country

To the editor and the citizens of the Fourth Judicial District: My name is Shane Thelen, and I am writing this letter as an endorsement of Julie Garcia for the Supreme Court of the Fourth District. I have known Julie my entire life as a resident of her hometown of Moriah and as a teacher ...

Doty would be excellent North Elba supervisor

To the editor: As a condo owner and frequent visitor to Lake Placid for many weeks at a time over the past seven years, the upcoming election for North Elba town supervisor has been on my mind. Not being a full-time resident, I would not presume to offer opinions about local issues that I ...

Ellis does a great job

Good memories of Joe Pete Wilson Sr.

To the editor: I first met Joe Pete Wilson at a gathering of cross country ski area operators in the fall of 1976. We soon be became fast friends. Fast-forward four years to my wedding reception. When the music started playing for the bride and groom’s first dance, I was busy chattering ...

Donaldson earned trust

To the editor: I’m writing in support of Cliff Donaldson, candidate for our county legislature. Cliff is a good husband, a good father, a good public servant and a good man. I’ve known Cliff since 1976. Back then, Cliff was a teacher. He moved into public service and spent 13 ...

Donaldson for legislator

To the editor: I say kudos to Mr. Donaldson for having the determination to take on what has become a “closed shop” Democratic Party in this area. I would ask all voters of District 7 (Harrietstown and Franklin), what has your current representative done for the southern end of ...

Thanks for the coverage

To the editor: I’d like to thank the Adirondack Daily Enterprise for its coverage of New York state’s first-ever Adirondack Oktoberfest held on Friday, Oct. 4 in Lake Placid. I was happy to attend, participate in the day’s events and make several announcements on behalf of Gov. ...

Stefanik is flying with the wrong flock

To the editor: It’s been a few months since I last tried to contact Ms. Stefanik’s office by email to let her know what I think about a few issues. Otherwise, how would a representative know how his or her constituents are thinking and how to vote? It seems that it is now almost ...

Stefanik also undermining inquiry

To the editor: Why is it Rep. Elise Stefanik’s loyalty to Donald Trump has become secondary to our national security interests? She called for Chairman Schiff to step down after reading the whistleblower testimony before committee review; however, it’s rather clear why the ...

Donaldson has the experience for the job

To the editor: The number-one qualification for the Franklin County legislature is EXPERIENCE, and former county Legislator Cliff Donaldson wins that category hands down. I think we should review some of the things Cliff has done during his tenure in government service. He was a ...

Ellis has listened to Franklin town concerns

To the editor: From time to time we make decisions that we regret later. Last year I wrote my first letter in support of any political candidate. I supported Lindy Ellis for Franklin County legislature, not because of promises that she made but because she actually listened. One year later ...

Reelect Lindy Ellis to county legislature

To the editor: Elected officials serve an essential function in our American federal, state and local governing processes. This fall, residents of Franklin County are fortunate to have several highly qualified individuals seeking election to the county legislature. I first met Lindy ...

Why Lindy Ellis?

To the editor: Why are there so many letters to the editor supporting Lindy Ellis’ run to continue her seat on the Franklin County legislator for the towns of Franklin and Harrietstown? If you have ever had the fortune to be present to observe Lindy when a concern is expressed for a ...

Hope GOP has a good backup for Trump

To the editor: It is my expectation that President Trump is going to do all of us a big favor and decide some time in early to mid 2020 not to run for reelection, partly because of a likely slowdown in the economy. When that happens, I hope that the Republicans will nominate someone of good ...

We must ensure a bright future for teaching

To the editor: Education is not static. As the needs of students change, teachers are constantly working to keep up. For those of us who have made education a career, that can be laborious, but it’s a labor of love. On World Teachers’ Day this Oct. 5, we all should take a moment ...

Lindy Ellis for reelection

To the editor: I am writing to support Lindy Ellis in her reelection as Franklin County legislator. I have come to know Lindy as someone who cares for our community, our children and our families. We have known each other for over nine years, working together on fundraisers and ...
