To the editor:
I am writing to urge everyone to vote for Barb Rice as Franklin County legislator on Tuesday, Nov. 5.
I have had the pleasure of knowing Barb as a friend, neighbor and business person for almost a decade. I can say without hesitation that she will be an excellent representative for the towns of Harrietstown and Franklin. She has worked diligently as a village trustee on behalf of her constituents, and I know she will take that same passion and work ethic to the county. She knows the issues, but most importantly she knows the people she will be representing. I have seen her head out regularly to knock on as many doors as possible throughout her campaign. This speaks volumes about the person Barb is: She cares, listens and will be a strong advocate for her district.
Barb has the right business and budgeting experience for these difficult times. She will look into issues, not just jump on popular ideas or flashy, easy fixes. Barb will follow through in a logical and careful manner. She knows how to watch tax dollars wisely and will use the knowledge and experience she has gained as a successful business owner, elected official and active community member to the taxpayers' advantage.
Barb Rice has the right combination of skills, experience and energy to be an outstanding Franklin County legislator. I urge you to vote Barb Rice for Franklin County legislator!
