LETTER from SHANNON McHUGH
To the Editor,
I would like to officially announce my support for Jill Basile who is ready to lead District 14 within the City of Oneonta into greater times. She is running for the county Board of Representatives in the hopes of bringing new energy to Ward 7-8.
As a small business owner for the past 14 years in this city, I wholeheartedly believe in and support Jill’s ideas and concepts that are going to ignite a line of open communication with those who are in a space of power in our community.
I have had the pleasure of working alongside Jill at the Susquehanna SPCA, where together we shaved matted dogs saved from a neglect case. Her energy and positive outlook can be seen in every facet of the SPCA, where you can also find her walking adoptable dogs on Main Street in the snow or ensuring the community is aware of the shelter’s needs. She is that person you go to when you need something done and you know it will be done right.
I also serve as a Community Relations & Human Rights commissioner for the City of Oneonta, and have utilized Jill’s skills and determination to assist the commission in its goals. Jill is always available, and ready for whatever concern or issue comes her way.
She is the type of individual that leads by example and leaves you feeling empowered. As a community we are lucky to have such a genuine and open individual that is going to bring compassion, new ideas and good ole hard work to our county board.
I hope you will join me in bringing about this much needed positive shift into our community, and vote for Jill!
SHANNON McHUGH, LMSW
