POUND RIDGE, N.Y. – The Pound Ridge Daily Voice accepts signed letters to the editor. Please send letters to firstname.lastname@example.org .To The editor,
For those who don't know me, I have lived in Pound Ridge for almost 50 years. I have served the town for the past 25 years as planning board chairman, a town councilman, deputy town supervisor, town supervisor and am currently the executive director of the town's office of emergency management.
The quality of life that we enjoy in Pound Ridge is a direct result of the clear thinking of our town leaders, focusing their attention on the policies that must be maintained and issues that need to be addressed. Providing only essential paid services, with the extensive social services we have provided by volunteers has been the successful Pound Ridge formula.
Dick Lyman has been an active participant in the town's success for his 30-plus years of community service. A lifelong Pound Ridge resident, Lyman's achievements are documented by his service in the police department, fire department, garden club, highway department, as zoning board chairman, a town councilman, OEM liaison and town supervisor.
During my administration, Lyman was the "go-to" guy for getting things done, which he always did within the parameters of our Pound Ridge goals, "keeping taxes low, protecting the environment and promoting volunteerism." He also continued to promote those principles in his first term as our town supervisor. The current majority of our town board has forced the board to deliberate on time-consuming and unproductive initiatives.
This election is an opportunity to put the board's focus back on track. Please support the re-election of Dick Lyman as our Town Supervisor, as well as his running mates, Jody Sullivan and David Dow, for Town Board.
The future of our town depends on it.
