Wheeler good choice for clerk

I strongly recommend that Gail Wheeler be nominated for the position of North East town clerk at the May 18, 2019 Town of North East Democratic caucus. 

Through my experience as one of the former deputy town clerks who has worked with the current town clerk, it is my strong belief that Gail Wheeler is the most competent and committed candidate.

Gail Wheeler possesses the dedication and attention to detail the position of town clerk requires. She has proven her commitment to putting the needs of the townspeople as a priority, not only through her volunteerism, but as having been a public servant. Gail will dedicate herself to ensuring that the town’s records are maintained in a professional and easily accessible manner. With Gail, the town clerk’s office will be managed with the utmost diligence and efficiency,  saving taxpayer dollars.

I urge all Democrats to please attend the May 18 Town of North East Democratic caucus being held at the Millerton Inn at 10 a.m. to give your support to Gail Wheeler for town clerk.
