Carson Deserves Your Support

As our 5th Ward Council Member, Len Carson has worked tirelessly for the last four years for the benefit of the ward and city residences. I am honored to endorse Len Carson for the City of Oneonta’s 5th Ward Council Member for another four years. He is a true community leader.

Len honorably served in the U.S. Air Force and has been active in our local veterans’ group for years. He proudly served the City of Oneonta as a 26-year veteran of our fire department and retired as a fire captain of our highly respected Rescue and EMS department.

Len was previously elected to the Otsego County Board of Representatives and represented District 13; 5th and 6th wards of the City of Oneonta, prior to becoming councilman of the 5th Ward. He certainly understands the operations of Otsego County and that knowledge has helped him as he serves as 5th Ward council member in the City of Oneonta.

Len’s leadership on the current city council has been invaluable, not only because he is articulate, detailed and speaks to people in ways they understand, but his thoughts and actions are clear and effective.

Len’s latest initiative is public safety and safe neighborhoods in the 5th Ward and throughout the City of Oneonta. And as newly-appointed chairman of the Safe Homes and Neighborhoods committee, be certain that Len will take the “bull by the horns” regarding this important issue.

Len Carson has encouraged small-business growth and started his own family business, DC Marketing, here in the City of Oneonta. He has taken this business from concept and moved it to a state-of-the-art business. He understands the perils businesspeople have to deal with and seeks a path forward for small business growth, which will help with our city’s revenue and sales tax growth.
Len Carson has seen a need to take homes that are dilapidated within our city and has personally rehabilitated several properties. Len is not only a talker when it comes to solving problems, but also a doer! He is a doer for the good of the 5th Ward and the City of Oneonta.

You will not be disappointed by casting your vote for Len Carson this November.

William Shue
Former 6th Ward Councilman
