Winchester a knowledgeable candidate

The Daily Star

---- — Winchester a knowledgeable candidate

I wholeheartedly endorse the candidacy of Teresa Winchester for the District 2 seat on the Otsego County Board of Representatives. Teresa is thoroughly familiar with the county, its people, its economy, its problems and challenges, and with the many attributes that make life here enjoyable. 

Her 15 years service as director of the Otsego County Conservation Association has given her a thorough familiarity with all branches of county government. Over the years, she has worked closely and successfully with county personnel at all levels. 

Her activity in opposition to proposed fracking for natural gas has been key to the progress made in combating this threat to our community, its health, and our way of life. But her interests are much broader than that. Among them is her confidence that Otsego needs a comprehensive plan — one that takes into account the interests of all facets of the community. 

In all of her public activities, Teresa has shown dedication, capability and determination. She would be a great asset to the board and to the people it serves.
