Learned a lot in two years

in

To The Editor:
It is not easy being a town supervisor, but Marge Miller has been an effective one.
On the county level, she has strongly represented the Town of Middletown with both skill and independence. On the town level, she has actively moved our town forward with vigor.
I am aware of the criticism that has been leveled at her. In situations such as this, I have always reminded myself that there are two sides to every story. I have noticed that Marge has carried out her campaign with politeness and dignity.


Pro and Cons compared

in

To The Editor:
Although I was born in New York City, I was raised in Halcottsville and am no doubt a local. Growing up in the Catskill Mountains provided me with an incredible childhood, which shaped me into the adventurer I am today. In addition to the many wooded wanderings, my family spent a good amount of time exploring the city. It was these trips that showed me there was so much more to the world than Delaware County could offer me.


Positive re-election campaign

in

To The Editor:
I’d like to thank Marge Miller for her positive re-election campaign.  In the face of fire, she has focused her campaign on issues and her fine record of accomplishments.  Marge has worked full time for our benefit whether it’s keeping our town taxes in check to representing our interests on the county level and in relation to New York City.

Hardenburgh board failed to act

in

To The Editor:
We live at 3 Hinckley Road, Millbrook Road, Town of Hardenburgh. We were informed on Thursday, Oct.17 that the bridge that services our home and five other parcels of land had been officially closed. This message came after a DOT scheduled bridge inspection. We were aware in the past several years that there had been problems with the structure. These problems were addressed and as time went on the weight limit on the bridge continued to be lowered to three tons. We were told that was the lowest possible limit allowed by DOT.


Andes taxpayers beware

in

To The Editor:
Town of Andes Assessor Tina Moshier works five days a week and is paid $39,000 a year. She also receives a family health plan, fully paid for by the town. Her total salary and benefit package costs the town approximately $72,000 a year.

On October 1, the Andes assessor was hired by the Town of Hamden to be their assessor, work two days a week, and be paid $15,500 with no benefits.
The Andes Board was notified of this arrangement at its first budget workshop and held a discussion of the situation.


County cemetery in disrepair

in

To The Editor:
During the middle to the 1800s, Delaware County decided it was time to build a home to take care of the old, those that could not take care of themselves and families couldn’t take care of them either or perhaps their mental condition was such as they took special care. This was for adults as well as children. All ages were taken care of. As time passed, they had to take care of those that passed away and so the county developed a cemetery. Ages of the patients ranged from birth to one person that was over 100 when she passed away.
