March 18, 2009: Support sought in village election


To The Editor:
As a candidate for mayor for the Village of Margaretville it has been a heartwarming experience for me to visit with you, our village residents, over the past several weeks. I would like to thank all of you for your kind words and gracious welcome. I know how much you care about your community.
We have a great deal of work to do to manage our budget carefully in these uncertain times. We must be aggressive and find ways to resolve the challenges we face with flooding, and we must seek to improve the climate for business and retail to keep our Main Street vibrant.
Let’s work together to improve those things that need improvement as we celebrate the best our community has to offer.
I would appreciate your vote for me on Wednesday, March 18, from noon until 9 p.m. Voting takes place in the Village Office, in the Gottfried Building on Main Street in Margaretville.

Carol O’Beirne,
