Letters to the Editor: March 11, 2010


To lead as Mayor, one needs to have a deep and broad knowledge of Village issues.

There have been many meetings or conference calls I’ve participated in with Congressman, State legislators, and Town officials, where multiple subjects have come up unexpectedly. In those moments, a Mayor needs to have the information at their fingertips to strongly and effectively represent the Village. In this era, where working with other governmental agencies is crucial, I have already proven I can work with the Towns and County on issues that are important to the Village.

We all deeply love this Village. Whether we’ve been here one year or 50, one generation or more, it’s impossible not to feel love for Cooperstown. In my family’s case, we picked up and chose to fulfill our lifetime dream by moving to Cooperstown, where Karen and I could bring up our three boys, in a Village where everyone looks out for each other. Living here and serving the community has far exceeded our expectations.

I want to humbly thank all those who have expressed their support for me in so many different ways. I will continue to represent the interests of all of our residents fairly and honestly if elected Mayor.

I ask for your support on Election Day.

Jeff Katz


I pledge to work tirelessly

My name is Doug Walker and I am running for village trustee. I graduated from CCS in 1963, served in the Marine Corps in Vietnam and graduated from St. Lawrence University in 1971. I have owned and operated several businesses in Cooperstown over the past 30 years, including Danny’s Market, Walker Gallery Fine Art and Framing, The National Pastime and currently 2 Chestnut Bed and Breakfast. I believe my greatest strength that I bring from that experience is my ability to work with a team and to make informed decisions that lead to solving problems.
