Lyme Town Council candidate seeks support

My name is Julia Gosier, and I an running for the Lyme Town Council. I have been regularly attending town board meetings since 1989. Twenty-four years of attendance is much longer than any current board member. I also frequently attend meetings in Cape Vincent.

Our two towns have a lot in common but work very differently. We can learn from each other.

We need to do all we can to protect our air and water quality for future generations. One way to do this is to encourage the use of green energy. If we are not part of the solution, we are part of the problems.

We must expand our water districts. Too many people in Lyme do not have plentiful and potable water. Small industry would greatly improve our tax base, but our town’s vision prevents that. Without any industry, our residents mush shoulder the whole tax burden. Much of our town land belongs to the state or other land conservation not-for-profits. This future increases the tax burden on our residential land owners.

The most important thing you as a concerned citizen co do is to vote. Election Day is Nov. 5. Polls are open at 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.

If you need a ride to the polls, please call me at 315-649-5452.
