To the editor:
The Pound Ridge Town Board will be wrestling with significant challenges in the next few years. Water and septic management for Scotts Corners is a long time issue, but there are signs of activity led by Supervisor Dick Lyman that might improve the situation. Fair and affordable housing will be the subject of proposals to be considered by the town. Continued creativity will be required to keep expenses and taxes from escalating. Continuing mandates from the federal and state governments will need solutions. Dealing successfully with these challenges will require understanding of the governing process in the public sector, a willingness to listen and work with others, and the ability to make tough decisions. David Dow with his thoughtful manner and his relevant experience has these qualities. David has said that he is committed to sorting out the facts, listening to different viewpoints, seeking realistic long term solutions and setting goals and priorities to achieve them. He has shown this, based on what he has done as the Pound Ridge Library board president the last few years.
Based on my 13 years of experience on the Town Board, it is my judgment that David Dow will be the perfect fit for the board at this time. I hope others have had an opportunity to talk with him and will join me in supporting and voting for David Dow for the Town Board on Tuesday, Nov 4. Jon Powers, Deputy Town Supervisor, Town of Pound Ridge
