Examiner Letter: Why I support Pete Harckham

I was glad to read in The Examiner that Pete Harckham has entered the race for New York State Senator. As a resident of Mount Kisco for more than 40 years, I know the great job Pete did as our County Legislator. He worked to protect the environment, or air and water. He worked with Democrats and Republicans to get bills passed to fund vital programs for families.

If he is elected, his seat could put the New York Senate under Democratic control. The Republicans currently in power have been working against children, labor, small business, taxpayers and others for years. Pete’s experience in state government, including his work on community development grants, would help get things accomplished in Albany.
