I am writing to ask the citizens of Johnstown to join me in voting for Michael Julius as the next mayor of Johnstown. I have been privileged to know Michael as a friend for more than six decades. We grew up in the same neighborhood in Johnstown and Michael still lives in the home and neighborhood where he was born. He is a proud son of Johnstown who graduated from Johnstown High School, earned his pharmacy degree at Albany College of Pharmacy, married his wife, Catherine, and the two of them operated their own independent pharmacy for many years before recently retiring. They raised their daughter, Vicki, and continued to proudly call Johnstown home throughout their lives. Now, Michael has an opportunity to give back to the city he has loved throughout his lifetime. He has the time, energy and vision to be the kind of mayor the people of Johnstown have come to expect of their mayor.
