Let’s Add another H to Saratoga’s Logo

By Joe Kulin | Letters to the Editor

Having served on committees for Saratoga Peace Week, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, and as a volunteer helping homeless Veterans, I have come to know first-hand the long and continuing commitment that Joanne Yepsen has personally contributed to these initiatives and similar others to assure that our community’s high ideals and respect for the needy gets the support that is duly deserved.  Mayor Yepsen’s efforts to protect our Greenbelt and her opposing the imposition of live casino gambling in our town has made a her a champion of quality of life for the citizens of Saratoga.  For me and many others Joanne represents the best of human traits, a big heart and compassion for others.  Because of her and many other devoted volunteers in our community, I propose that we add to Saratoga’s Logo of “Health, History and Horses,” another “H” standing for Heart or Humanity.  Carry on Mayor Yepsen!
