Schiebel will represent local needs
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.
