Yepsen Best Choice

By Barbara M. Casey | Letters to the Editor

Letter to the Editor:

As someone who worked with Joanne Yepsen for many years at Skidmore College and has been her friend for more than 25 years, I said two years ago that she was the best choice for mayor of Saratoga Springs. I feel strongly that Joanne is still the best choice for mayor.  It is rewarding to see her continue to advocate for open government and transparency. It is inspiring to see her advocate for the homeless of Saratoga Springs and work to improve our environment and increase our open spaces. And it is refreshing to hear Mayor Yepsen say what she will do, then get it done, while reaching out to those with opinions different from her own. It is refreshing—but not surprising.  Mayor Yepsen continues to be true to herself, she continues to be true to the people of Saratoga Springs, and she continues to be the best choice for mayor of Saratoga Springs.  I encourage you to vote for her on election day.
