From Supervisor Witmer: As your Town Supervisor, it’s important for me to know that you have easy access to your local government; that your questions are answered, and that you have avenues to communicate the issues which are important to you. Please call me about any government issue during my office hours or if that’s not convenient, leave me a message as to what time and where it would be convenient for me to contact you. You can also use the email connection below or a letter to me at PO Box 136, Slaterville Springs, NY 14881.
Democracy is a government of, for, and by the people. Therefore a democracy needs involvement by ordinary people. If ordinary people don’t get involved in the day-to-day business of our government, if we don’t learn about the issues facing our elected officials, if we don’t become involved, then the democracy created by our forefathers will not survive. An informed electorate is the key to a successful democracy. Please contact me for ways that you can get involved and please ask questions.
