I’m writing to urge all of my fellow Lakers – Democrat and Republican – to vote for Jen Metzger for State Senate this Nov. 6. Jen has a strong record on the environment and will be committed to preserving our most important resource in Greenwood Lake – the Lake. Moreover, I believe that monopolies – political or economic – are not good for our democracy.
In Orange County, all Countywide Offices and most local elected offices are in the control of one party. Electing Democrats like Jan Metzger, who has demonstrated an ability to work bipartisan with her Republican colleagues, will help restore a competitive balance of power in Orange County.
Finally, I wish to make clear that my choice for Jen Metzger for State Senate is not an anti-Annie Rabbit vote. Annie warmly welcomed me to Greenwood Lake when I first arrived twelve years ago. She has been an adequate County Clerk and I truly believe that the people of Orange County would be better served by keeping Annie Rabbit in her current position.
So my fellow lakers – and fellow Warwickians – on Tues., Nov. 6 vote to send Jen Metzger to Albany as our next State Senator and keep Annie Rabbit here at home in Orange County.
