Letter: Vote Donohue For Lewisboro Town Clerk

LEWISBORO, N.Y. — The Lewisboro Daily Voice accepts signed, original letters to the editor. To submit your letter, email bdumas@dailyvoice.com .

To the Editor:

I wanted to add my voice to the chorus endorsing Janet Donohue for Lewisboro town clerk. I’ve known Janet as a friend and neighbor for more than a decade, as our daughters are good friends and Janet was their Girl Scout troop co-leader for several years.

I’ve also had the extremely pleasant and seamless experience of seeking Janet’s help at Town Hall, first as a witness to my will and, more recently, as the official who shepherded my husband’s and my marriage license through the right channels. We specifically drove three hours from Massachusetts so that we could register our marriage in Lewisboro with Janet. We wanted it done right by someone we trusted.

I’m well aware that not all visits to Town Hall are so happy, and that’s precisely why Janet was former Town Clerk Kathy Cory’s obvious choice. She is genuine, compassionate, discreet and incredibly organized. Those are precisely the qualities you want behind the counter when you go to Town Hall to attend to a sensitive and important matter.

As town clerk, you can’t misplace or even mis-order documents. You have to demonstrate incredible attention to detail, adhere to firm deadlines and keep multiple plates in the air at all times, or constituents can suffer real harm. You want someone who dots every “i” and crosses every “t” on your behalf, because she understands how much it matters, and that’s Janet Donohue. So, I encourage you to cast a vote for continuity and elect Janet Donohue on Nov. 6.
