The voters have spoken. By an overwhelming margin they have voted in a group of four trustees with diversified strengths and a willingness to see all sides of issues and vote independently on them.
Ellen Tillapaugh, Jeff Katz, Walter Franck and Jim Dean were the winners of the election, but the real winners are the citizens of Cooperstown. We can now look forward to an era of enlightenment and common sense in our governing body.
Congratulations and the best of luck to our newly elected officials.
Thanks for support
