Kaytee Shue, Candidate

For Council, Good Manager

To the Editor:

I wanted to introduce you to Kaytee Lipari Shue, a professional colleague of mine, and also a lifelong 30 year resident of Ward 4. Kaytee, with her husband Jared, as new parents moved back to Oneonta to ensure their family would have the same rewarding experiences that Kaytee had growing up.   Born and raised in Ward 4, Kaytee has the understanding, strength and a commitment to seek solutions to grow the center city community that we can all be proud of.

Kaytee has over 12 years in management and has the keen ability to uncover the root cause of any concerns and will find the solution to fix the issues. In her management positions, she developed strong teams and maintained her Maurice’s store ranking in  the top of the Northeast Region, while also growing the store brand and gross sales.

In working daily with Kaytee for over seven years, I know from experience her strong leadership skills are above expectations and her commitment to getting the issues resolved is what we need in Ward 4.

Kaytee is very personable, has great communication skills and is extremely responsible. Kaytee has a lifelong connection to our entire community and will seek out the resources to provide the 4th Ward residents’ with the support and the solutions that WE are looking for.

Ask Mark Davies About His 6 Goals
LETTER from DAVID HUTCHISON

Ask Mark Davies

About His 6 Goals

To the Editor:

Please help to put Mark Davies, the top candidate for Common Council from Ward 2, on the Nov. 5 Ballot by voting in the primary, noon-9 p.m., Tuesday, June 5, at Foothills.

His June 25 opponent is already on the Republican line for the Nov. 5 ballot. Mark needs your vote on June 25 to win his line on the Nov. 5 General Election ballot.   Let me know if you need a ride.

Mark is by the far the most qualified and energetic candidate for the Ward 2 seat. He has served the city and Greater Oneonta on five groups related to the development of the city and initiating environmentally sound policies, such as area-wide composting of waste, ways of saving and introducing clean energy, ways of introducing sustainable practices contributing in long range planning for the city, and ways of supporting challenging athletic programs for youth such as soccer and biking,

As a member of the city Environmental Board, I have watched Mark, who is chair, work with other board members and the community to bring to fruition things like the Community Gardens, to obtain grants to reduce the city’s energy consumption, and to support bringing a few hundred high school students and their families to Oneonta two weekends ago for a biking competition (good for local businesses).

When Mark stops by your house in the next week, ask him about his six goals for the City.

Mark might not tell you this, but his real skill is working with people of all political interests as long as they are interested in working for the betterment of the city, its youth and older citizens.

As a professor at Hartwick College, Mark knows younger folks and has involved them in the sustainability efforts of the city, helping to bring students in contact with other city residents.

Make sure your neighbors in Ward 2 vote too on Tuesday, June 25. It is important!
