Vote for long-term growth in November

The Daily Star

---- — Vote for long-term growth in November

The old guard has served us honorably and well but unfortunately its view is narrow and shortsighted. In the coming days ahead, with our energy future unclear, we need people who will take the long view. 

We don’t want a boom-and-bust economy and a degraded environment. We want to protect and enhance our environment, all the better to lure in the tourists and their money. We want our farmers to feed us, not just dairy but everything that will grow here. Maybe we can’t grow oranges, but there is a lot that can be grown.

This coming election, vote for those with vision, courage, intelligence and the work ethic to make things happen. Vote for Teresa Winchester for county representative, Charlie Eckelmann for Butternuts town supervisor, and Joyce Pattengill for town board. There is a better way forward, but we need to elect those who can show us the way. Vote Sustainable Otsego all the way.
