This is a disgrace

in

To The Editor:
The fact that the week before the town supervisor election an inaccurate and biased article was headlined on the front page of the Catskill Mountain News (CMN) is unprofessional and violates journalistic ethics.  
First of all, Joe Moskowitz should not be allowed to write articles about this race since he was soundly beaten by Marge Miller in the last election for town supervisor.  Why isn’t that fact disclosed to the public every time he writes an article about Marge Miller?  


Great soccer season

in

To The Editor:
The MCS boys’ soccer team, that defeated Davenport on Saturday to win the Section IV, Class D soccer championship, was truly remarkable. They not only won the title but finished their season undefeated.

One of the factors involved in accomplishing something like this includes good coaching and in this
case it was Jeremey Marks who instilled confidence in his team. The boys also played at their very best every game, worked together as a team, and never gave up on themselves.

Good luck in the upcoming state tournament.

He has the right attitude

in

To The Editor:
Over the last two years I have been in contact with our elected officials informing them of the gross unfairness taxpayers in Halcottsville and Denver have been subject to. Our school taxes are levied by, and paid to, the Town of Roxbury, yet our assessments are determined by the Town of Middletown where our properties are located. This dichotomy has led to abuse.  


She deserves our support

in

To The Editor:
I was privileged to have served on the Middletown Town Board in the 1970s.   It’s apparent that managing the town is so much more complicated now than it used to be.


What he doesn't know

in

To The Editor:
I am writing to express what I know and what I don’t know about the two candidates for Middletown Supervisor, Nelson Delameter and Marge Miller.
I know the local Republican Party is backing a professed Democrat/Independent against Ms. Miller. That is in itself a worrisome fact.
I know Marge Miller helped bring the 2013 budget under the two percent cap.
I know Marge Miller saved the town $67,000 by switching the prior insurance carriers, I don’t know if Mr. Delameter would have done this.


County bed tax is unfair

in

To The Editor:
On the proposed Delaware County bed tax, I have spoken to several local homeowners and business owners, and found a growing outrage at the proposed new tax.  I completely agree with the points they made, which include the following:


Harvest Moon Ball a success

in

To The Editor:
On behalf of the Harvest Moon Ball and its committee members, we would like to thank all those who love our Catskill Mountain community, both near and far, who have volunteered their time and talents, their energy and imagination.
Our sponsors, contributors, and advertisers, whose support and participation made the Harvest Moon Ball a success and a reality, our gratitude.  


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.
