There is a simple choice _ vote for the ``tax and spend’’ candidate, or vote for fiscal planning and responsibility. We need to plan our village’s future, not simply go month to month and see what happens. Vote for Joe Booan.

Vote for Booan
Joe Booan believes in win/win solutions. Look at 24/7 police coverage. Instead of blindly backing a proposed $38,000 budget amendment, Joe recognized an opportunity to do the right thing. Everyone wanted comprehensive coverage. Joe Booan’s compromise maintained 24/7 coverage and saved you, the taxpayer, over $20,000.
Admittedly, this approach does not provide for much passion on the campaign trail. It may not be politically expedient. However, Joe Booan is not a politician.
Joe Booan is a problem solver. Joe Booan is constantly looking for win/win opportunities.
Joe Booan is a leader.
Issues change. Leadership, integrity, teamwork, style and character are constant. Leadership, integrity, teamwork, style and character matter. Joe Booan possesses these qualities. This is why I am backing Joe Booan’s bid to be our next mayor. This is why I support Alton Dunn & Doug Walker for trustee.
They will provide the leadership our village most urgently needs.

Like Mayor Waller did
This is a great ad for Jeff Katz _ it’s a highway billboard at I-90 and I-87 in Albany. I’ll explain . . . The Village has an external media ``footprint’’ that is 10 times the size of the village, approximately that of a town with a population of 200,000. Its economy depends on tourism. So when the Hall of Fame starts holding press conferences after business hours and on Saturday, Booan might be an OK choice. Or when NYSHA, Fenimore, Farmers’ Museum, and Bassett schedule events to accommodate an ``after work’’ mayor.
But that’s not the way tourism related media events work. So it’s not a bad idea to have a Mayor that has an engaging personality. Especially during their 9 to 5 ``work week’’ as mayor. When they are going to be doing some of their best work: representing a town that depends on tourism. Like Mayor Waller did every time she left her shop . . . to go to work.
