Red v. Blue. Republican v. Democrat. Just about every one of us associates ourselves with one or the other. On a national level, I typically do too, however, on a local level I believe it doesn’t really apply.

When I look at who is running for mayor or common council, I think: “Do they have the best interest of Summit at the heart of their agenda?” Beth Little is that candidate that clearly has the best interest of Summit at the heart of her agenda, and not just for some, but for everyone.

Beth is running as a Democrat, but she has made it very clear that she wants to keep Summit affordable for everyone by NOT raising taxes and has laid out a plan to do just that.

In addition, Beth is committed to keeping our schools strong. Beth has focused on education through most of her volunteer work in Summit.  In fact, I had the opportunity to see Beth’s great work with the Summit Educational Foundation and know that she will bring that experience to common council. It’s no secret that strong schools help raise every resident’s property value no matter your political affiliation.  

All of Beth’s volunteer work since she moved to Summit, and there has been a lot, has been to improve this wonderful town in a completely selfless manner. I can’t think of a more honest, and capable person who has the utmost integrity to represent Summit families on town council.  

Please join me in voting for Beth Little on Nov. 7th.
