Presidential elections, my thoughts move to our own elections here in Beacon. I am pleased that Terry Hockler is running as a write-in candidate for Mayor.
I have known Terry for many years and am confident that she is a true advocate for the citizens of Beacon. I appreciate her platform of protecting the elderly by fixing or lowering their taxes as well as her desire to find more accessible transportation for senior citizens and the physically challenged. Terry Hockler understands that we all need good roads and essential services; that our children deserve quality schools, that supporting our local businesses make for a healthy, thriving community. She also believes that the essential charm and ambiance of our city should be preserved; that growth should be thoughtfully planned.
It is refreshing that she believes that only with transparency in government can faith be restored, and I believe in the platform she has laid out in her website. Terry Hockler will be a positive voice as the Mayor of Beacon.
