Campaign of change

in

To The Editor:
I want to recognize the more than 100 voters in the Town of Middletown who accepted my platform of positive change for the United State’s Justice System. The message of my campaign for town justice must live on; simply, we are bankrupting our country while exploiting those citizens with the smallest voice.

To The Editor:
Yet another Election Day has come and gone. Some citizens are happy, others are sad.  The politicians have stepped down from their soapboxes, the campaign speeches have stopped. The lawn signs are gone. Promises were made and lies were told and when all was said and done, the citizens have spoken at the polls.
Some citizens unhappy concerning who was elected and some are happy; however, whether you are happy or sad, I hope you voted.  If you did not, then you have no reason to be either.  You failed to exercise one of your rights under our Constitution.

Where are we headed

in

To The Editor:
During the last century, Europe witnessed the violent clash of two political ideologies diametrically opposed to each other – on the Left – Communism, on the Right – National Socialism. In our nation today, historical events of the most gigantic dimensions are unfolding before our eyes as millions of disillusioned Americans are saying goodbye to the old Democratic/Republican con-game – it’s no longer business as usual for these shysters peddling their stale snake oil.


This is where it pays off

To The Editor:
I’d like to congratulate the Margaretville boys’ varsity soccer team on their Section D Championship.  They worked long and hard for it. Great job boys!

I’d also would like to thank the boys’ coaches.  When I say coaches I mean all of them.  The ones they had through the years.  Thank you Mr. Marks for the many years and long hours of dedication you’ve given our varsity team.  The way you teach, coach, and inspire our boys, and your caring ways on and off the field.  


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.
Artie Zier,
Arkville


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

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.
