To the Valley News:
I have never met someone so interested, involved and concerned about the community where she lives as Margaret Bartley. No matter how busy she is, how many things she has to accomplish, she always makes time to help someone else. Whether it's as simple as getting someone an email address to something as involved as helping to initiate, set up and support the stain glass window fund for the expensive repairs of the town hall stain glass windows or getting down in the muck with the victims of Irene. She is an active member of the Chamber of Commerce and the ZBA, she attends all board meetings at both the county and town level. She is personally responsible for initiating the taping of town board meetings and writes the town summery you find in the Valley News.
Her positive influence, determination to get things done, will have all civic organizations working together with open lines of communication. Things will not be left as "status quot".
Many people have stated "If you want something done and done quickly, ask Maggie to help".
Evelyn Hatch has been an Elizabethtown business owner, she is the treasurer of the Chamber of Commerce, an active member of the Planning Board, she attends all town board meetings. She's a concern and caring person, whom will help anyone and be involved wherever she can. She would be a great asset to the town council.
Elizabethtown is the county seat and it should reflect that. Please elect Margaret (Maggie) Bartley as Town Supervisor and Evelyn Hatch to the Town Council, together they will be the spark of revitalization the town needs, so that all can be proud and prosperous here in our town.
