I would like to emphasize that a large number of people attended the Meet the Candidates night hosted by the Cape Vincent Improvement League on Oct. 10.
That being said, did you ever wonder why battles are fought? Have you ever considered the possible answers to this question?
Surely, we have all thought about this from time to time. It occurred to me during the process of this meeting and understanding the candidates and what they hope to accomplish is that they appear to want the same thing.
The approach to this, I believe, has varied widely. I believe that honesty, integrity and, most of all, unity within our community is a part of the answer.
We have become the brunt and laughing stock of many. A community where some people wouldnt dream of becoming a Cape Vincent resident, where the politics are as such at the present time.
Lets change to an open government where as a community we ask that the decision-making process be for the whole of our village and town and not just for a few.
On Election Day, get up, get out and take the time to use your right to vote and make the difference. It is only through the voting process that we can. Vote for the person, not the parties.
Please vote on Tuesday, Nov. 5. Polls are open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. at Recreation Park.
