Letter to the Editor: Local candidates thank students and faculty and urge participation in upcoming election

To the editor:

The Democratic team of Bob Wilcox for town supervisor and Sally Wood and John Zmich for town council appreciates the interest shown by many students during the run-up to the Tuesday, Nov. 6 town election. We are grateful for the good work of Dr. Tom Matthews, Dr. Marilyn Klotz, and the members of the GOLD team in putting on the Candidate Forum on Oct. 18, as well as the large number of students who participated.

We are running to help protect and preserve the unique nature of this great college town. We plan to actively market the town to the kinds of businesses which offer career opportunities - not just short-term and part-time jobs - so that some of you may even want to stay here after graduation and help move the community ahead. There is much more to learn about us if you will check out www.geneseodemocrats.org.

If you are registered to vote here, we hope you will make the effort to go to the polls next Tuesday, Nov. 6. They are open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. If you don't know where to vote, please contact the Livingston County Board of Elections at 243-7090.

You represent the future and need to weigh in on what the future will look like, not only for yourselves but also the students who follow you. Thank you for your citizenship.


-Bob Wilcox, Sally Wood and John Zmich
