To the Adirondack Journal:
In 1945, as the nation was about to emerge from the darkness of World War II, the musical “Carousel” opened on Broadway. The lyrics of one song from that musical related well to our national mood in those days. It read: “When you walk through a storm, keep your chin up high, and don’t be afraid of the dark, at the end of the storm is a golden sky…”
On Nov. 8, voters in the Town of Lake George will have an opportunity to move Lake George Town governance out of darkness and into a brighter tomorrow — by voting for the candidates supported by the Lake George Citizens Group: Dennis Dickinson for Town Supervisor and Marisa Muratori and Dan Hurley for Town Board. These three well-qualified candidates appear on the Lake George Citizens Group’s line “F”.
By this time, virtually every registered voter in the Town of Lake George has received a letter from the Citizens Group with an enclosure entitled “A Plan To Govern.”It outlines very specifically what we expect from our Town government — expectations largely ignored by the three incumbents seeking re-election.
Beware! The three incumbent candidates represented a majority on the town board during the period the State Comptroller examined the Town’s financial condition and payroll. The Comptroller reported serious deficiencies in governance during this time. The bottom line is that we need a new team in place.
All three Citizens Group candidates support the overall concept of “A Plan To Govern” and deserve our vote. Vote for the candidates on line “F” – the bottom line.
Someday we might be able to jump on a real carousel at the wonderfully re-developed West Brook property, see a golden sky over our community and jump off the political merry-go-round we’ve been on.
