To the editor:
First and foremost, I wish to thank Tim Mahoney for putting his heart and soul into our campaign for Cazenovia Village Trustee. During the three months we campaigned together, I learned just how much he cares about the Village of Cazenovia.
Though the outcome was not what we had hoped, Tim displayed a dignity and grace Tuesday night that we should all strive to emulate.
Second, I wish to congratulate Dave Porter for running a respectable, fair-minded and successful campaign. I learned much about Dave Porter that I did not know: compassionate, humble and intelligent.
I look forward to working with Dave, Mayor Wheeler and the remaining trustees as we grapple with complex issues that do not have easy solutions.
Finally, I wish to thank the voters of Cazenovia for electing me as a village trustee. I vow to put the same level of energy and passion into governing as displayed during the campaign.
Our next village board meeting is Monday, July 2. I hope to see you there. The listening continues …
