Devoted service shown

I think the residents of Broadalbin need to take a hard look at the facts about the candidates for supervisor .

I have served the town for the last 14 years. In those years, I have been involved in construction of the new town hall, construction of a salt storage shed, construction of two town bridges, construction of our water district and assembling a team of residents that will finally bring the town park to reality. All was accomplished without raising taxes.

I have faithfully served in the past or am currently serving as chairman of several different bodies, including the Broadalbin Youth Commission, Fulton County Human Services Committee, the Great Sacandaga Lake Advisory Council and the Town of Broadalbin Republican Committee. I have attended countless meetings at these organizations in order to make Broadalbin and the general area a better place to live.

I have been on the committee to organize and worked at the Fulton-Montgomery home show since its inception three years ago as well as working at and helping to organize the annual block party. I have supported BYC functions and attended meetings for more than 13 or 14 years, 10 years before I was on the BYC board. This is in contrast to my opponent, who has never attended a single BYC meeting or Fulton County Board of Supervisors meeting. I have to question his motivation for running for this position if he doesn’t care enough to even attend meetings that he will be representing the people of Broadalbin at if elected.

I have kept the town of Broadalbin on a steady keel financially for several years. In fact, the New York state comptroller’s office performed a risk assessment in recent years and determined that the town didn’t require a full-blown audit since everything was in order.

I think if you look at the truth, and not the campaign rhetoric, the choice you have to make on Nov. 5 will be clear. I would like to thank you for your support in advance as Election Day approaches. Vote for Joe DiGiacomo for supervisor on Nov. 5, your clear conservative choice.
