Letter: In depth knowledge
To the editor:
I attended the Democracy for Monroe County (DFMC) primary debate for local candidates. I listened intently to the two candidates running for the Monroe County Treasurer position.
Clearly, there is no candidate that has more in depth knowledge of the Treasurer's office than the current Deputy Treasurer, Hans Huffman. He understands how important it is to keep accurate records, he has intimate knowledge of the inner workings of this office, and can give detailed descriptions of issues and has solutions to handle existing problems such as software compatibility. As someone who has led a team in a supervisory role within the Treasurer's office, I feel he has the skills necessary to be an extremely successful treasurer and would serve our Monroe County well.
As such, I am writing to publicly endorse Hans Huffman, candidate for Monroe County Treasurer. Take some time to view the recording of this debate found here: http://catstv.net/m.php?q=3127 and make your own decision.
In the interest of full disclosure, I am a board member of DFMC and this is written independently of the organization, which has yet to come out with an official endorsement.
