I heartily endorse both Claire Howard and Connie Brace for re-election to the Skaneateles Town Board. These ladies are both eminently qualified professionally and by avocation to continue in their roles as advocates for and protectors of the thing that matters most to the well being of our town — THE LAKE. They have been passionate stewards of best practices which will maintain the quality of our water and its surroundings. Why anyone wants to replace either of them is beyond me.
They have worked tirelessly and effectively to maintain and improve the lake and its effect on our quality of life, both socially and financially. While I'm good friends with two of the other candidates and am familiar with the work of the other I see no expertise in any one of them which should supplant that of the incumbents. Please don't make this a political issue, but vote for the most qualified persons to do the job. Claire and Connie have proven themselves capable and willing to continue in their positions. We would be unwise to lose the talent they lend to representing us. Re-elect Claire Howard and Connie Brace.
