Baldwinsville Over the past 28 years I have served as town attorney for the town of Lysander, I have had the opportunity to work closely with two supervisors, and a number of different town board members. I have seen no evidence at any time of the conspiracies, self-dealing, unethical conduct or lack of integrity that Fred Burtch would like voters to believe is rampant in the current town administration.
Barry Bullis has served the town as supervisor for almost 16 years. I hardly knew Barry when I first became town attorney in 1983; there was no pre-existing friendship or any personal relationship. I have come to know Barry through an almost daily working relationship during his tenure as town supervisor. I can tell you that I have not met any person who loves the Town of Lysander more than Barry Bullis, or any town official who has worked harder to promote the best interests of the citizens of the town over the past 16 years than Supervisor Bullis. It sickens me to see an unqualified candidate like Fred Burtch and his ilk slander Barry with false accusations and half-truths in an attempt to exploit the current anti-incumbent sentiment.
Full time pay for part-time work? Let me tell you, folks, Barry Bullis spent the first half of his tenure as supervisor working full time hours for part-time pay, and the past eight years working far more than full time hours for what amounts to a very modest salary for the CEO of a municipal corporation with a multi-million dollar budget.
Republican voters, don’t be conned by the misguided rantings of Fred Burtch: Barry Bullis has served the town well, and with your vote will continue to do so.
P. David Twichell is the Lysander Town Attorney.
