WEINBERG: Gelbsman Saves You Money

WEINBERG: Gelbsman Saves You Money

To the Editor:

I have known Craig Gelbsman and the Gelbsman family for over 40 years. When Craig was elected to the Otsego County Board of Representatives I was extremely pleased.

Craig is always on top of the issues that matter to the residents of Otsego County. He is fiscally conservative and will not spend the taxpayers’ money without a thorough and thoughtful examination of the issues.

Craig has lived in this county his entire life. He and his wife, Mindy, are raising four wonderful children in Oneonta. Craig is a great example of a person that was born in Otsego County staying in Otsego County.  This is exactly the type of person we need to stay on the County Board.

Craig and I have had many conversations about waste and unnecessary spending in Otsego County and he is constantly fighting for what’s correct for county residents.

The following are just some of the many issues Craig has worked on:

  • Streamlining the budgeting process
  • Communication tower improvements and upgrades
  • Vehicle maintenance and leasing efficiency

Craig worked diligently for several years to have an effective and functioning shared services agreement. This purchasing agreement has saved the county hundreds of thousands of dollars and will continue to save the taxpayers money for years to come.

I urge you to support Craig in the upcoming election.

Concerns About DRI Projects

Landlord Rick Weinberg, Rental Company One, addresses Oneonta Common Council and packed chambers this evening following Otsego Now CEO Sandy Mathes’ update on the status of the Downtown Revitalization Initiative (DRI), funded with $13 million in state economic developing funding so far. “I heard from a friend of mine that his rentals are down 20 percent and he may have to leave the area,” Weinberg said. “Local landlords are not doing well.” Questions about housing needs were just one of the many raised during the meeting in City Hall, which lasted over two and a half hours.
