To The Editor,
For those who don't know me, I have lived in Pound Ridge for almost 50 years. I have served the Town for the past 29 years as Planning Board Chairman, a Town Councilman, Deputy Town Supervisor, Town Supervisor and am currently the Executive Director of the Town's Office of Emergency Management.
The quality of life that we enjoy in Pound Ridge is a direct result of the clear thinking of our Town Leaders, focusing their attention on the policies that must be maintained and issues that need to be addressed.
Providing only essential paid services, with the extensive social services we have provided by volunteers has been the successful Pound Ridge formula.
Dick Lyman has been an active participant in the Town's success for his 40 plus years of community service. A life-long Pound Ridge resident, Dick's achievements are documented by his service in the Police Department, Fire Department, Garden Club, Highway Department, as Zoning Board Chairman, a Town Councilman, OEM Liaison and Town Supervisor. During my administration Dick was the "go-to" guy for getting things done, which he always did within the parameters of our Pound Ridge goals: "keeping taxes low, protecting the environment and promoting volunteerism." And, he has continued to promote those principles in his first two terms as our Town Supervisor.
In this current term, Dick has helped to advance two other important community issues: The transformation of the old Trinity Corners Shopping Center to Pound Ridge Square resulting in keeping and re-energizing Scotts Corners Market into the spectacular Market at Pound Ridge Square and the creation of a Northern Westchester Center for Victims of Domestic Violence. Dick's consistent efforts on our behalf has kept Pound Ridge the special place that it is. Please support the re-election of Dick Lyman as our Town Supervisor as well as his running mates, Bonnie Schwartz and Peter Marchetti for Town Board, and Debbie Damascus for Receiver of Taxes. The future of our Town depends on it.
