To the Editor:

In the GOP primary there are two key distinctions: experience and residency. Simple, simple! Matt Doheny grew up in Alexandria Bay. I

went to school with Matt’s mother, Kay and knew all of Kay’s sisters and brothers. They were a hard working family and lived through tough challenges like we all did back in the 50’s.

I admire Matt for doing so well with his life. He is a real businessman who specializes in turning around companies and creating jobs. If ever there was an area that needs a specialist in creating jobs, it is the North Country.

Now Matt has a wonderful family himself. Matt has the real world experience that he can be proud of. Please listen up folks—Elise Stefanik grew up in Albany and has spent her short career working almost entirely as a political operative.

To me the choice is simple. Let’s give Doheny a chance and see if he can use his business skills to help bring jobs to the area.
