Kristen Hansen speaks out about a letter written regarding Janice Abdo-Rott
While employed at the village of Manlius as the Parks and Recreation Director, I witnessed trustee Abdo-Rott give more time and energy to the village than any other trustee. I cannot help but respond to the letter written by a Morrisville college student because his accusations against trustee Abdo-Rott are false.
My current college project in political science involves gaining a local perspective about any elected official in Manlius. I chose trustee Janice Abdo-Rott. Trustee Abdo-Rott turns out to be controversial and polarizing, so I am sharing some of my findings.
With the ubiquity of technological devices that connect us to each other and to information on the internet, our children are becoming more and more tech-savvy at much younger ages. But this savvy does not bring with it the maturity and life experience needed for children realize they are in unsafe situations.
I am writing this letter in support of Tom Pilewski’s candidacy for trustee in the village of Manlius. I’ve known Tom for nearly five years. Simply, Tom is trustworthy. And trust is critical when making decisions that impact a community.
I have been reading the various letters to the editor relative to the village of Fayetteville Justice election. At the heart of residents’ decisions should be the character and experience of the candidate. For those of you who may not know him, I write to offer my opinion about one candidate, Judge Chris Danaher.
I am writing to voice my support for Janice Abdo-Rott for re-election as Manlius Village trustee. I have read recently in this and other papers, the many letters of others like myself who support her. The recurring theme of the letters speaks to her collaborative nature, commitment, integrity and trustworthiness.
Trustee Eric Krouse writes about his unexpected decision to run for re-election
I must be crazy to seek re-election for a third term as Trustee for the Village of Manlius. I was asked to run the first time in an effort to elect a board more sensitive to the needs of the village. In 2009, I was re-elected for a second 4-term. I ran because there was still much unfinished work... on Vision Manlius... on budgets... on infrastructure. To top it off, we were in the middle of an economic downturn unprecedented since the Great Depression. The challenges have been many, yet by paying attention to the details and stretching our dollars, we have accomplished much.
Manlius mayor Serafin speaks out about election signs in the village
As we get closer to the 2013 village election, I have been hearing more and more comments, questions and concerns about the amount and size of the current crop of campaign lawn signs.
Candidate Jim Hughes gives his two cents
I am running for election to fill Tom Miller's unexpired term as village of Fayetteville justice, and I would like to take this opportunity to explain why I want to serve you in that role.
I’m writing on behalf of Mayor Serafin- look at what he has done: put in new sidewalks as well as redone the Swan Pond, which was badly in need of repair. It was drained and the sediment at the bottom removed, the concrete walls and fountain were repaired and the electrical wiring was upgraded. After 56 years I think it was way overdue for repairs and an upgrade. The paths were widened and it looks great- a job well done!
Candidate Bill Moran speaks out
My name is Bill Moran, and I am a Vision Party candidate for village trustee. Many of you have come to know me from my working over 20 years at the original "What's Your Beef" restaurant next to the Swan Pond. My wife and I also owned and operated Shelly’s restaurant at Liberty Square. As a result, I have extensive experience in the food service industry, experience that continues to grow in my current position as beverage manager at the Cavalry Club.
