To the Editor:
I’m writing to urge the voters in the Village of Canton to vote for Mary Ann Ashley for Village Board. In a time where we face many challenges, we need fresh ideas on the board. Mary Ann brings a well-rounded background to the table. Having been a department head for the County, a member of the Canton School Board, and a member of the New Fire Station Committee, she has proven herself to be capable of working with budgets, cutting costs while retaining services, and working side by side with a broad range of people.
Mary Ann understands the necessity of working together, both within the Village Board, and with the Town to find ways to improve services while cutting costs. She understands how important it is to continue the consolidation between the Village and the Town. She also understands the large role that planning will play as we look to grow the Village. Her personality is well suited to work with everyone necessary to mitigate the challenges that lay ahead.
Having spoken with her, I know that she is willing to put forth the effort that the job requires. We need someone with vision, courage, dedication, and energy to tackle the issues that face us. Mary Ann Ashley is that person.
