To the editor: When the editorial in this newspaper that appeared two weeks ago lambasted members of the Lysander Town Board for insulting and childish behavior towards one another, it also criticized me as equally guilty for not showing leadership in thwarting such behavior.
To the editor: I am a proud Lysander resident, born and raised in one of the best places to live in Central New York, and I feel fortunate to have been given the opportunity to serve this community. I do so in honor of my father, who put his heart and soul into serving in local government.
To the editor: In the aftermath of the primary election held on Sept. 10, it is reasonable to believe that unimaginable history was just made in our town. So many of you watched it unfold in amazement. The primary was for registered Conservatives, with the winners capturing the all-important “extra line” to represent the Conservative Party on the November ballot.
To the Editor: I am writing today to introduce myself as a candidate in the November election for the position of Lysander Town Council.
To the editor: I am not a taxpayer in the town of Lysander, as I do not live in the town. However, I was born and raised, graduated and lived in the town for more than 45 years, and most of my family still resides here. I went to the Lysander Town Board last year during budget time to ask for money to be put in the 2015 budget specifically for the Lysander Union Cemetery.
To the editor: On July 12, 2015, Syracuse.com published an article about a young woman named Alicia Healy who grew up in B’ville and graduated from C.W. Baker High School in 2010. The article was titled “One woman’s Lyme disease fight: I went from straight A’s to having difficulty reading.”
To the editor: On July 13, I addressed the Lysander Town Board and inquired about a board meeting I witnessed being held behind closed doors earlier that day. The town attorney later provided me with an advisory opinion from the NYS Committee on Open Government, indicating the board can meet to seek legal advice and the Open Meetings Law does not apply. However, the opinion also stated: “Further, if at some point in a discussion the attorney stops giving legal advice, a public body may begin discussing or deliberating independent of the attorney. When that point is reached… the attorney-client privilege has ended and the body should return to an open meeting.”

To the editor: My mom just sent me a clipping she’d held on to awhile, which was a letter from Dr. David Hamilton, Superintendent of Schools, and Casey Vanderstouw, marching band director, thanking alumni of the B’ville Marching Band for the years of support. That stirred quite a few emotions for me, and on behalf of many alumni, just wanted to share a ‘way back then’ moment.
To the editor: Wow! After four long years of staying up into the wee hours of the night, I can proudly say, “It is finished!” This summer I completed my last requirement in obtaining my bachelor’s degree in political science from SUNY Oswego. I am very excited as I move into the next phase of my life. On July 9, one week after I completed my last summer course, I left early in the morning for a five-day vacation to California. This was my first time there, and I had a wonderful time hiking in the mountains and going to see the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library. However, while I was away, everything was not cool and copasetic like I had hoped it would be.

To the editor: After reading an article in the Baldwinsville Messenger dated June 17 [“Questions raised about Lamson Road water costs,” page 3], I felt compelled to reach out to our wonderful community and ensure the residents that, as an elected town councilor for the town of Lysander, I always strive to represent the people in the best, fairest way possible with cooperation, openness and transparency.
