I have had some interaction with the Hustis family since moving to Cold Spring in 1983. Harry Hustis became a treasured customer at my shop on Main Street; dear Charlie was a lunchtime mainstay; Don assisted me with cemetery research and information; Jamie is now a neighbor.

Throughout the week, I run into Chuck Hustis at Foodtown or on Chestnut Street. He and all the Hustises are an integral part of Cold Spring. I believe in his sincerity and desire to do the best for this village, and I support him in his candidacy for mayor.

I have been at meetings of both the Philipstown council and the Cold Spring Village Board for a variety of reasons. Each time I attended, I was extremely impressed by the way issues were addressed thoughtfully, fairly, with attention to detail and with an eye towards long term effects.

I urge everyone in Philipstown and Cold Spring to be certain to vote in the upcoming elections, and to support these incumbents: Marie Early and Francis Murphy for Cold Spring village trustees, David Merandy for Cold Spring mayor, Judy Farrell and Robert Flaherty for Philipstown council and Richard Shea for Philipstown supervisor. Having fair, effective and financially responsible local government is wonderful.
