Election Letters

Green Diebboll is about service

Service is what Isaac Green Diebboll is about. I am writing to add my voice to those supporting him in his run for election to the Sullivan County Legislature, serving District 5. Previous writers to this forum have acquainted readers with Isaac’s history of recording and posting town meetings, memberships in the Hortonville Fire Department and the Callicoon Business Association, and establishment and operation of the North School Studio.

I would like his future constituents to know more about the spirit with which Isaac is creating his record of public service. Isaac has yet to encounter a position he cannot entertain in the openness of his mind or the warmth of his heart. In his campaign quest to personally speak with as many voters in the district as possible, he is paying attention to local and transplant, employed and un(der)employed, liberal and conservative, young and old, etc. He does not seek out opinions to support a preconceived agenda; rather, he has proven his ability to listen and to build community in every entity and organization in which he participates. Count District 5 and the Sullivan County Legislature among them by voting for Isaac on November 3.

Support for Brandi Merolla

Brandi Merolla has already proven herself to be a competent public servant. It was her vitality that drove the Tusten Energy Committee to research and advise the town board on municipal solar energy options. It is her vitality and volunteer work that continues to save taxpayers money as a result of the replacement of outdated lighting, to energy efficient lighting in town hall. It was her vitality, along with members of her committee, that led to finding the right person to provide an energy audit of our town hall so that we can save more of taxpayers’ funds.

Brandi is chair of the Tusten Energy Committee. Her work is always complete, accurate and relevant to our needs. The work and findings of this committee is now sought by neighboring communities so that they can follow the Tusten lead.

It is a likely next step to have Brandi Merolla elected and serve as a town council member. Brandi works hard and stays informed. She has been attending town board meetings for over eight years. She knows the issues. She is not afraid to work and will serve our town with intelligence, integrity and sincerity. My vote is for Brandi Merolla.
