Vote for Lynne this March 16; let Lynne continue to keep our community government working for Cooperstown citizens. A vote for Lynne is a positive vote for all local residents.

I offer my full support for Katz

I am writing to offer my full support for Jeff Katz in his bid for Mayor of Cooperstown. Jeff first of all is a ``Fan’’ of Cooperstown with a history and a love of Cooperstown that dates back to the 1970s. He began making yearly trips in the 1980s and ultimately chose to relocate with his family and settle here.

As a resident of the Village Jeff has had experience with the many things that work well here and as well as concern and an awareness of challenges we are facing. He has been an active contributor to the community primarily as a two term elected Village Trustee and has most recently as our Deputy Mayor. Jeff has worked on generating new revenues for the Village through his efforts on Doubleday Field Concerts and parking. These have been difficult times and as we face further issues with the economy and our infrastructure needs here in Cooperstown he offers both experience for the position and fresh ideas.

Jeff has also been active in the Rotary Club and with the Cooperstown Concert Series. I know him best through our working on the Concert Series. Jeff has a deep respect of the history of our organization as we celebrate our 40th year.

  • Our Readers' Opinions After living in the western southern tier for 10 years, my wife and I decided to visit the Hall of Fame today, June 20, before moving out of the area in a few weeks. We enjoyed the museum, but parking in Cooperstown proved to be a formidable gauntlet.
