To the editor:
I am writing to support Fred Balzac for North Elba Town Council. He is passionate about serving the local full-time residents and will work tirelessly to improve our community. Over many years, Fred has been active in standing up against special interests. He will work diligently to increase affordable housing options for local workers, to diversify the local economy to make us less reliant on tourism and to address problems that develop due to climate change. Fred is an independent thinker who will always be evaluating each issue as it comes up and striving to improve the lives of local residents and workers. In local elections, I believe party affiliation is far less important than personal character, devotion to the community and a willingness to confront difficult situations. I urge everyone to vote for Fred!
