Alton G. Dunn, III
Re-elect Katz and Mebust
We would like to publicly endorse Lynne Mebust for a second term as Village Trustee and Jeff Katz for Mayor.
Both of these candidates have repeatedly demonstrated their commitment to the greater good of Cooperstown’s residents during their prior tenures as elected leaders.
Both of these candidates have amassed valuable experience in the issues that impact the Village and have spearheaded and supported innovative ideas and programs for the betterment of village residents.
In particular, we reflect upon the issues and stances of these candidates as it relates to paid parking, 24-hour police coverage, Fire Department parking for volunteers and the utilization of Village resources for fund development to offset the local tax burden.
Lynne Mebust and Jeff Katz are available, accessible, and hardworking Village leaders. Both bring open mindedness and honest discussion to the Village Board, and always in the light of the public. Both candidates are prepared and thoroughly understand current Village issues.
Jeff and Lynne have brought about many positive changes to the residents of Cooperstown and both have earned their positions on the Village Board.

I am supporting Jeff Katz in his bid for Mayor. His qualifications have been well laid out by others, so I’ll talk about Jeff as my neighbor. I think it says a lot about Jeff that it took us weeks, after we first moved in, to realize he was a Village Trustee. I could see right away that he was proud to live here, but Jeff wears his official role lightly. (A good thing in a small town!)
Jeff and his wife Karen were drawn to Cooperstown by the same things that matter to us: a sense of history, and a real community, and the chance to build a good life for our children. For three years, we’ve lived side by side, putting down roots on Chestnut, to help make it a pleasant stable street where family homes now flourish .
