PEEKSKILL, N.Y. -- The Peekskill Daily Voice accepts signed letters to the editor. Send letters to firstname.lastname@example.org .
I have lived in Peekskill all my life and feel that this election on Nov. 5 is an extremely important one.
We need to keep the vision alive that was started when we were first elected in 2008.
Peekskill has become a thriving community and a destination location. Just look at all the new businesses that have moved into Peekskill. Little by little the vision is coming to fruition. As the old saying goes “All good things take time.”
I have worked with Mayor Mary Foster,Drew Claxton,Andy Torres and Marybeth McGowan and can honestly say that this team is made up of some of the hardest working and dedicated members of this community. I haven’t had the pleasure in working with Vivian “Cyndi” McKenzie but I know she will be an asset to the council as she is already an asset to the Peekskill business community. These people really care about the city of Peekskill and its’ people.
I fully and enthusiastically endorse Mayor Mary Foster for re-election and Drew Claxton,Andy Torres,Marybeth McGowan and Vivian “Cyndi” McKenzie for council.
I hope you will join me in keeping the vision alive by supporting this team. They are not only our city officials but I am proud to call them my friends.
Sincerely, Patricia Riley Former City of Peekskill Councilwoman 2008-2012
