To the editor:
I am pleased to publicly express my support and vote for Derek Doty as town supervisor of North Elba. He has the time to provide the attention needed to the details and mandates of law required to supervise a town in this day of budget and services shortages and requirements.
As a past attorney for the town, I am familiar with those demands and details. Derek has the experience, the competence and the interest to achieve the right and fair result and is eager to spend his time to accomplish all those tasks. It will not be a job for Derek.
I urge others of North Elba to support him. It is time for a change in the leadership of the town or we will slide into mediocrity. We can’t afford to simply drift along as we have over these past years.
Please vote for Derek Doty on Nov. 8.
James M. Brooks Esq.
