Support Betsy Batchelor for third ward council position

This letter serves to endorse Elizabeth Batchelor for the Gloversville 3rd Ward Common Council position.

In my opinion, there is no better candidate than Betsy. By running on the Gloversville Party line, Betsy demonstrates that she is a strong supporter of bipartisanship, working with people of both parties to move Gloversville forward. To that end, she labored tirelessly as the co-chair of the Gloversville Public Library capital campaign, effectively communicating with both state and municipal governments and with local citizens to raise more than $8 million. That is money that does not have to be spent by taxpayers to update and bring into the 21st century a historic, beautiful downtown building. I expect she will labor equally hard to improve other aspects of the city.

Betsy supports downtown businesses such as Mohawk Harvest Cooperative Market, the Gloversville Farmers Market and Micropolis, where she not only serves on the executive board but also helps working artists by manning the desk. She believes in Gloversville. Believe in her. Vote for Elizabeth Batchelor.
