Editor, The Spotlight
As a Delmar resident, I’m thankful that Richard Reeves-Ellington is running for town supervisor on the Working Families Party line. Why? He offers a tremendous amount of both business and academic experiences; he strongly supports the voices of grassroots and neighborhood organizations; and he is committed to improving our lives without waffling ideologically.
Reeves-Ellington’s agenda focuses on improving our school system and on strengthening opportunities for students, and he endorses our hard-working teachers. As a community, we invest in our educational system because it represents the community’s commitment to future generations. Reeves-Ellington also concentrates on improving our aging infrastructure, which helps to position us for a more competitive business environment.
I’m also glad Reeves-Ellington is running for public office because he seems to be the only candidate who is not confused about what he really believes in. Embracing more than one political party just to attract more votes seems to be common these days. As a voter, do you want to be sure of a candidate’s political beliefs or are you already trained in to accept candidates who engage in shape-shifting depending on the audience?
In my case, I’m glad that Reeves-Ellington knows what he stands for.
