Jeff Katz and I have been friends for eight years. I know he has all the fine qualities one has a right to expect from any public servant: smart, sincere, honest, hard working, fair, considerate, dependable and loyal.
Jeff is a solid family man, devoted husband and father, with great moral conviction. While I have not known Joe as long, he clearly has outstanding talent. I supported Joe for Trustee and believe over the last nine months he has worked hard for Cooperstown, a place he deeply loves.
And for me, the deciding difference between the two men is length of experience in office.
Jeff Katz has worked hard for the Village over the last five years, bringing in desperately needed new revenue through concerts, pay and display machines, and fees at Doubleday Field.
Jeff has increased the reserves for both our volunteer Fire Department and our beautiful Village Parks.
Professionally, Jeff is more than ready to step up to be our Village Mayor.
I had the privilege of working with Jeff for three years while we served as Trustee for the Village of Cooperstown, seeing him put his thorough and often exhaustive research into action.
As Deputy Mayor Jeff has guided our community through many matters and has done so in a timely and competent manner.
I am convinced that as Mayor Jeff Katz will work tirelessly on behalf of all of us and deserves your vote as well as mine.

Jeff Katz for mayor I am writing this letter to endorse Jeff Katz in his bid for Mayor of Cooperstown. Over the past five years, I have had many dealings with Jeff in my position as Vice- President and now President of the Cooperstown Fire Department.
Jeff was instrumental in adding additional reserve monies to contracts with other municipalities, adding an additional $40,000 to the Fire Equipment Reserve over the past two budget years.
