LETTER from DAN BUTTERMANN
To the Editor:
I am writing to enthusiastically suggest we vote for Jill Basile for county representative from District 14 (Ward 7-8).
I have been fortunate to get to know Jill during her campaign. This campaign is not the start of her contributions to benefit our community either, as she has been giving to our community for many years. Her resume is rich with experience that will greatly benefit our county in her new role.
Jill started as a resident director at Hartwick College, working to ensure the wellbeing and safety of our college students. After Hartwick, Jill went to work for Opportunities for Otsego in its violence intervention program, then onto the county in its office for child advocacy, and now she works as an academic adviser at SUNY Delhi while raising her family right here in Oneonta.
Not only have Jill’s professional activities directly benefited our region, she also volunteers for organizations like SPCA, Reading is Fundamental and Future of Oneonta Foundation.
Jill is well equipped to take on the challenges of the board of representatives and I recommend all my friends and neighbors in District 14 cast their vote for her on Nov. 5. Wait! Head out now and vote early. Vote today!
