I recently received a letter from candidate Nora Radest in which she outlined the ways in which she is different from our current mayor, Ellen Dickson.  One of her examples was  "In a crisis like Hurricane Sandy, I will be present--I will attend every public utility meeting to advocate for our residents."  Candidate Radest is inferring that Mayor Dickson was not present during the superstorm Sandy.  That is simply not true.

Not only was she here in Summit but was staying with me as her own house had no electricity or internet for well over a week and a tree had fallen on part of her house.  I saw her work tirelessly to keep the public informed and work with the local utilities to restore service.  If candidate Radest is attempting mislead Summit during the election, how can we trust her to be forthcoming as Mayor.
