To the editor:
There is a famous quote by Baba Dioum that says, “In the end, we will conserve only what we love” and if you love our little jewel, Pound Ridge, Dave Dow is the clear choice for Town Board.
Of course Dave has an impressive resume: he’s a scientist, lawyer, and is currently president of the Library District, but those aren’t the reasons why we’ll be voting for him. Instead, it’s because no present board member or board-candidate consistently participates in the many activities that make Pound Ridge so unique. After all, life is about showing up.
Dave doesn’t seek the limelight. In fact, he’s often the unsung “behind-the-scenes” hero of a large supporting cast of many fantastic events in town.
You may find him along one of the trails at the Pound Ridge Ward Reservation with Pack 170 working on earning Boy Scout merit badges with his son. You will see him giving his time at the school. You’ll see him celebrate the successes of his children and your children at flag football, softball, baseball, basketball and field hockey games.
One place you won’t see Dave is during the annual Pound Ridge School of Dance recital. He’ll be too busy behind the scenes stage managing for his wife, Colette’s, small business: The Pound Ridge School of Dance. He truly understands what it takes to run a successful family business in Scott’s Corners. He knows the realities – good and bad - that come with the territory.
Dave and his wife chose Pound Ridge as the place to raise their family and he’s here for the long haul. He wants to protect his property value and maintain what’s good about Pound Ridge as well as promote change where needed. He knows we need to make the proper investments in our infrastructure, most importantly water treatment in the business district.
The things we mentioned above are all precious Pound Ridge treasures. We can think of no greater curator of Pound Ridge’s, past, present, and future than Dave Dow. Please join us in voting for him on Tuesday, Nov. 4.
