KATZ: Jastremski Transformed Library

KATZ: Jastremski Transformed Library

To the Editor:

I’ve been fortunate to work with Kim Jastremski the past few years. In her role as Library Board president, Kim has lead the way in converting the library’s funding structure, spearheading the successful public funding ballot initiative, which has put the library on solid financial footing, and pursuing New York State library construction grants.

These much-needed changes have transformed our much loved library both financially and physically. Residents throughout the school district have shared the benefits of her efforts.

To achieve these things, Kim has worked well with village government, the Hartwick Library Board, the state Department of Education and the Cooperstown Central school board. In an ever-changing, and somewhat frightening, world for public education, we need Kim Jastremski on the school board, fighting for our local interests.

Please join me in voting for Kim for the school board on May 16.
