I would like to wholeheartedly endorse Micki Strawinski in her bid to be the next County Legislator representing Red Hook and Tivoli. As a former County Legislator myself, I know the level of independence, fiscal responsibility and constituent outreach required of this demanding position. Dutchess County is facing extreme fiscal pressures and can ill-afford the proposed $200 million jail currently being planned and to which our current legislator has not objected. I have complete faith that Micki is just the person we need to stand up to the powers that be and help guide our county back to a more sustainable fiscal future.
On Nov. 5, I urge you to exercise your right to vote and to vote for the only county legislative candidate with the experience and passion to truly make a difference, Micki Strawinski.
