Hurley-Quackenbush has bipartisan support

The Daily Star

---- — It's difficult, in these days of partisan politics, to find a public official who is supported by Republicans, Democrats and independents alike. But in the town of Oneonta, Janet Hurley-Quackenbush is precisely that individual. That's why we need her on the county Board of Representatives. 

Janet has repeatedly been re-elected to the town board with the votes of people from all sides of the political spectrum. While a business owner, she knows the value of good public investments in the town pool, our parks and our environment. She works with people on both sides of the political aisle to achieve solutions. Janet is driven to get answers and find solutions, not score political points. 

We're not in the same political party, but that's OK. I want a county representative who can listen to everyone at the table and work with all sides. Having been on the town board for as many years as she had, she has fielded more than one of my questions and concerns in not only a timely fashion, but gone above and beyond to personally find a resolution, and follow up with me to ensure I was satisfied with the outcome. That's why I am proud to cast my vote for Janet Hurley-Quackenbush for county board.
