Letter to the Editor:

Dear residents of the town of Lincoln:

My name is Kara Vander Bloomen. I am running for Lincoln town supervisor and I am asking for your support April 1 when you go to vote.

So why am I running? I’m running because I and many others are not happy with the way our town takes care of the roads, particularly in the winter. We are also not happy with the outrageous amount of money our town supervisors, $550 per month, and chairman, $916 per month, pay themselves each year.

I’ve talked to a lot of people in the last two months and not one of them has said a bad thing about my opponent. As a matter of fact, they have all pretty much said he’s a really nice guy. I, on the other hand, am not always a really nice “guy.”

I have no problem pointing out white elephants in a room nor do I have a problem with asking hard questions and making unpopular decisions. If making unpopular decisions, going against the flow or stirring up a hornet’s nest is what it takes to get our town’s priorities in line with what our residents want, then that’s what I intend to do.

Here is my pledge to the residents of the town of Lincoln: I have no intention of collecting my pay as a town supervisor. Instead, I pledge to have my pay put into the snow removal line item to help keep our roads safe. Is my opponent willing to do the same?

On April 1, when you go to the polls in the town of Lincoln, you have a choice. You can vote to keep the status quo or you can vote to shake things up. If you want to shake things up and start making improvements, vote for Kara Vander Bloomen.

Kara Vander Bloomen
