Bossack and Gentz for Village of Dryden Trustee

Mary Ellen Bossack and Fred Gentz

At the Democratic caucus in January, I was delighted to see Village residents nominate a team of candidates with amazing strengths - and a delightful dose of modesty as well.

Mary Ellen Bossack is running for her fourth term as Village Trustee, having served six years as the only Democrat on the Village Board. She's also a counselor at the Dryden schools and president of the Dryden Teachers Association.

Fred Gentz works at Security Mutual Insurance, and is also the Post Commander of the Dryden VFW and an Honor Member of Neptune Hose Company. He's also Vice President of the Mental Health Association.

It's been a pleasure to work with them, not just in terms of running a campaign but also in their deep interest in the Village. It's extremely clear that both of them have deep connections to their neighborhoods and their community, and that they'd like to hear from as many people as possible when determining how the Village should proceed. They're both extremely interested in finding options for the sewer plant that can save the Village money, and I believe they could help move that perpetually-delayed project forward.

If you are a registered voter in the Village of Dryden, I strongly encourage you to stop by Village Hall between noon and 9:00pm today to cast your ballot for Bossack and Gentz. (Alas, I don't live in the Village, so I can't.)
