continued He has been a member of the Bethlehem 2020 Advisory Group and part of its sincere efforts to continue to make Bethlehem a vital and financially sustainable community.
Finally, John is a decent, hard working and civil person. He is open minded, independent, smart and energetic and he is a great listener. One of the reasons John decided to run is that he disliked the uncivil behavior directed at Sam Messina.
The example John gave at a recent house “meet and greet” event was Sam’s inauguration as Town Supervisor and subsequent State of the Town annual addresses, events at which all Town officials should be present. No Town Board member, including Kyle Kotary, showed up at any of those events. John and many others, including us, see that as a profound lack of civil decorum and it reflects badly on our local government officials and in our minds questions the validity of Kyle Kotary’s candidacy.
Please try to attend the candidates’ debate Thursday, Sept. 1 at 7 p.m. at the Town Hall, moderated by the League of Women Voters. It will give you an opportunity to get to know John Clarkson, a Democratic candidate in the primary on September 13 and hopefully our next Bethlehem Town Supervisor.
