Opinion: Join me in voting for Paul Kelly

Remember to mail in your ballet.

I first met Paul Kelly several years ago in various groups working toward a sustainable spending plan and fiscal certainty. Throughout my interactions with him, I have found him to be a good listener, objective thinker and sincere.

Kelly has taken the time to learn the issues and help where he can. He understands the intricacies of budgeting and the relationship between federal, state and local funds. If elected to the assembly, he’ll be able to hit the ground running.

As he goes door to door throughout our community, I hope you have a chance to visit with him as you’ll find him to be accessible and very knowledgeable about local government policies and budgets and how they relate to state spending and schools. In addition to sharing his ideas with you, he would like to hear from you, too. That’s why I’m supporting Paul Kelly for Borough Assembly on Oct. 5. Remember to mail in your ballet.
