Cast your ballots for Jeff Katz

Jeff Katz has already proved his devotion to the interests of our village, and promoted them with tact and energy. He has worked on a nonpartisan basis with everyone in the village government. Over the past few weeks he has spent many hours visiting residents in their homes in every part of Cooperstown, to hear their concerns and to discuss our future.

Jeff has fully demonstrated the experience, the ability, and the will to make an excellent Mayor for all of us.

But one aspect of Jeff’s candidacy needs to be stressed.

The Mayor of Cooperstown is on duty twenty-four-hours-aday and seven-days-a-week. At any moment a problem may arise requiring the Mayor’s immediate attention. Jeff not only lives in the village, as any candidate must, but he conducts his business from his home here.

Like Mayor Waller he has already proved that he can and does give village business top priority whenever it is needed.

He will always be here and available to serve us. My wife Eleanore joins me in hoping that our fellow Cooperstonians will join us in going to the polls on Election Day, and casting your ballots for Jeff Katz as Mayor of Cooperstown, and for the team of candidates he leads.

Hugh MacDougall

  • 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.
