This letter is in strong support of Pat Sheehy’s candidacy for Putnam County legislator in District 5.

I have known and worked with Pat in both the volunteer world and in state government. In the early years, she was a force in the creation of the Child Care Council in Putnam, volunteering to author grants that brought needed funds for child care to our county.

Pat has the knowledge, experience and energy to be a highly effective county legislator. She understands and has led state and local agencies, addressing the needs of all people – children, families, job seekers and seniors. She has successfully managed budgets, dealt with regulatory constraints, local and state requirements, processes and grants. She has a history of bringing people with diverse beliefs together, for solutions.

Pat is a fiscal conservative, whose goal is effective and efficient government that respects and protects the taxpayer’s hard-earned tax dollars. As a legislator, she will review contracts with a keen eye and reasonably question settlements that cost the taxpayer.

She is beholden to no one, has no self-agenda, either personal or otherwise, and is running solely for the good of the community. The residents would be well-served by electing Pat Sheehy to the county legislature. She is the endorsed Republican candidate. Please vote for her in the primary on June 28.
