Letter to the Editor : In support for Gary Bassett mayoral candidate – Rhinebeck Village

 

Gary Bassett would be an excellent Mayor for the Village of Rhinebeck. You really get to know someone when you work closely with them as I worked with Gary for 15 years. He was the lead person on many key IBM projects that we successfully completed. I believe that the character and competency he displays in his professional life would greatly benefit the citizens of Rhinebeck. He is one of the hardest worker I know, very honest, highly competent, has impeccable integrity, is flexible, a good listener and always reliable. He will actively listen to both sides of an issue and then, after obtaining and considering facts, knowledge and key information and from various sources, do what is right for those involved. He would be the a great asset as Mayor in moving Rhinebeck forward in a way that implements “smart growth” while respecting and recognizing the unique and historic characteristics of this beautiful town. Gary is certified as a NYS EMT, NYS Interior Firefighter and 1st Assistant chief of the Rhinecliff Fire and Rescue. He holds an electrical engineering degree, and is a NABCEP Certified Solar PV Professional. Gary is currently a Trustee on the Rhinebeck Village board. His effective leadership and managerial skills make him a perfect person for Mayor. I am proud to call him a friend and colleague and have always been amazed at his work ethic and involvement in our local communities and often as a volunteer. We are very fortunate to have someone like him working so hard and for so many in our community. The election is March 21st, 2017 so please vote!
