Opinion: Community fortunate that Charleson is running again in Potsdam, says union leader

I support Sam Charleson in his campaign for re-election at Potsdam town justice and ask that you do the same.

I’ve seen him work in the courtroom setting and would invite anyone to do the same. He treats the people before him with respect and understanding. He understands that being in the courtroom is most often not where people want to be.

He keeps it light when possible and tightens it up when necessary. Sam is a leader and a professional.

As President Emeritus of the Aluminum Brick & Glass Workers International Union and a 10-year St. Lawrence County legislator I know these traits when I see them.

I’ve spent my life working with folks that have them and some that throughout they had them.

Sam is the real deal.

The Potsdam community is fortunate that Sam has decided to serve a fourth term as town justice.

Cast your vote Sam Charleson on Nov. 6. Our community is a better place with him as town justice.
