Knox Democrats seek candidates

To the Editor:

It is time to plan for November’s local elections. Since our democracy depends upon voters having options, we need candidates to run for office.

The town of Knox has the following openings:

— Supervisor ($17,413.76);

— Clerk ($13,774.51);

— Two council members ($3,976.96 each);

— Justice ($10,545.60);

— Highway superintendent ($63,275.76 plus $5,200 for administration);

— Tax collector ($5,200).

The Knox Democratic Committee is looking for capable, motivated community members, no matter what your political party affiliation is. We are drawing from a small community, and the issues that come before our local officials are not at all related to the platforms of national political parties. Our meetings are cordial and productive.

As a leader in Knox, you would address how to improve our facilities and services and how to preserve, protect, and maintain our community resources. You could help make Knox a safer and better place to live. You could make a difference!

If you or someone you know is willing to step up to this challenge, we would be happy to talk it through and answer questions.
