Letters to the Editor: January 28, 2010


He led negotiations to bring Paul Simon, Bob Dylan (second show) in 2006, netting over $50,000 profit, around $15,000 to CFD. He also spearheaded the Crosby, Stills & Nash show in 2009, resulting in over $10,000 for the village.

He also

• fought for the police for 24/7 coverage.

•Oversaw the first successful reassessment in decades as Chair of the Planning Committee, insuring an equitable distribution of tax payments.

• Helped work in conjunction with the newly revived Friends of the Parks in 2005. Together, the Parks Board and Friends of the Parks built the first public playground in Cooperstown and vastly improved Badger Park for our community.

He also came up with the idea of Parks Reserve, to start putting away money for future parks projects. Now, there is $20,000 in reserve.

Jeff Katz is one of only two board members who have been consistent in their support of public safety by fighting for the police and fire departments. His concern for the village as a whole, and not just the Main Street businesses, is what we need in a Mayor.
