To the editor:
I first met New York State Assemblywoman Sandy Galef when I hosted a benefit for The Paramount Theater in Peekskill 20 years ago.
Instead of enjoying the classical guitar music and sipping chilled wine, Sandy spent the muggy August afternoon listening to the concerns and suggestions of all who recognized her.
In the years following, Sandy has helped my neighbors and me with issues ranging from a compromised storm drain to a poorly run medical office.
When you call Sandy, you know she is interested and knowledgeable.
A visit to Sandy’s website provides an exhaustive list of her accomplishments and goals. I would like to stress that she advocates for all of her constituents -- combining vision and experience. Sandy’s solutions are not constrained by an ideology or an attachment to a single issue, but by what will work for our towns and communities.
When I went to see Sandy Galef debate at the Mahopac Library it was clear to me that she does not merely want to win -- she wants to serve.
