Schiebel will rep­re­sent lo­cal needs

The Oneida Daily Dispatch (Oneida, NY) - - Opinion -

I amwrit­ing this let­ter to voice my sup­port for Oneida County Leg­is­la­tor Keith Schiebel. Keith rep­re­sents Ver­non and parts of Verona along with the City of Sher­rill. I have been the mayor of Oneida Cas­tle since 2004 and a mem­ber of the vil­lage board since 1993. I have worked with many leg­is­la­tors dur­ing that time and have found Keith to be the best.

Keith is a very ded­i­cated leg­is­la­tor. He comes to our vil­lage board meet­ings faith­fully and lets us know what is go­ing on in the county. He at­tends all our func­tions and as­sists us with any help or ques­tions we need from Oneida County. Not only does he do this with us but also for the Town of Ver­non, the Vil­lage of Ver­non and the City of Sher­rill. Keith is also very com­mit­ted to his du­ties on the Oneida County Leg­isla­tive Board and I have agreed with ev­ery de­ci­sion he has made. He is not a man­who just pro­vides lip ser­vice. He is a man that does what he says he is go­ing to do.

I strongly urge all vot­ers to vote for Keith Schiebel in the next elec­tion. He has al­ways been there for us and I would like to see him con­tinue that way. I am not writ­ing this let­ter to the ed­i­tor as the mayor of the Vil­lage of Oneida Cas­tle or as a rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the vil­lage board. I am writ­ing this a res­i­dent in Keith Schiebel’s leg­isla­tive district who is ap­pre­cia­tive of every­thing that Keith has done and will con­tinue to do for us. Vote for Keith Schiebel in the up­com­ing elec­tions.

Hen­nessey best for Oneida County

In as­sess­ing po­lit­i­cal rep­re­sen­ta­tives I al­ways look for the “I’s:” In­tel­li­gence and In­tegrity. Mike Hen­nessey has both in abun­dance. I first no­ticed him in the VVS au­di­to­rium fac­ing an au­di­ence packed with Turn­ing Stone em­ploy­ees as he calmly ex­plained his mea­sured and fair po­si­tion re­gard­ing taxes. He wanted them and their em­ployer to pros­per as he rec­og­nized their con­tri­bu­tion to the com­mu­nity, but he wanted the en­tire com­mu­nity to ben­e­fit ap­pro­pri­ately. He was calm and con­sis­tent de­spite au­di­ence in­ter­rup­tions.

So in this bizarre po­lit­i­cal year I have come to value an­other at­tribute: Mike’s tem­per­a­ment which shone through so clearly in that by­gone event.

We are for­tu­nate to have some­one with these ex­cel­lent and bal­anced at­tributes will­ing to rep­re­sent us. I en­cour­age vot­ers to take a se­ri­ous look at some­one who tran­scends party in fa­vor of the ben­e­fit of the com­mu­nity.
