Benton Can Get the Job Done

As a registered Republican, I am writing in support of MacGuire Benton being elected as our next Otsego County clerk in this November’s general election. As village administrator, I worked with MacGuire when he was a member of the Village of Cooperstown Board of Trustees. I found him to be very diligent with the responsibilities of village trustee. Before making decisions on issues that came before the trustees, MacGuire worked collaboratively with his fellow board members, village employees and village residents to achieve the best outcome for all. I was most impressed with the efforts he took to discuss with his constituents the issues that affected them and, more importantly, listen to their concerns. He worked hard to make government accessible to all.

In my opinion, MacGuire has exhibited the necessary experience and qualifications to be county clerk. He has experience with local government both as a village official and in his prior capacity as deputy elections commissioner with the Otsego County Board of Elections.

MacGuire has shown that he is committed to public service and has served his community well. I am pleased to support his desire to serve the residents of Otsego County as our next county clerk.
