LETTER from AMY CROUSE-POWER
To the Editor:
I’m so pleased that Caitlin Ogden is running to represent District 3 (Laurens-Otego) on the county Board of Representatives.
Caitlin brings to the race a life of public service. She spent her high school years volunteering to help rescued marine life.
She moved to New York seeking open spaces and a sense of community often found in Upstate New York, and over her 13 years in New York, she has strived to give back to her community.
She has made a career working in the non-profit industry with a special fondness for museums. A graduate of SUNY Oneonta with a master of arts degree, Caitlin has continued to seek ways to be active in her community, even plunging into Goodyear Lake in February’s annual Polar Bear Jump.
Caitlin’s career in non-profits and as a grant writer has given her the background to work on the county’s behalf: project management, communication, creative approaches to complex problems.
Her understanding of political office as public service means she knows her role is to be an advocate, to work for her neighbors, not for herself.
I’m supporting Caitlin Ogden for county board because we need a problem solver who will work for Laurens and Otego and all of Otsego County.
