To the Editor,
I am supporting Larry Quattrone for borough council of Hightstown.
Here are some of my reasons: Larry Quattrone has lived in the borough of Hightstown for most of his 70 years. He has been on the Borough Council for 13 years, and council president three times. The number of meetings he has missed, one could count on one hand. Obviously, he is a dedicated public servant.
Hightstown was inundated last year because of flooding, and the fire house and Borough Hall were devastated by this storm. Rather than renovating Borough Hall, Larry Quattrone wants to see our local government move to Mercer Street. This would save the residents of town more than $200,000. Borough Hall should be razed, and instead an attractive sculpture park should be created for all the residents and visitors to enjoy. This would also create a connection of the mill and downtown, making it desirable for development. It's time someone looks at this and gets the taxes it should be paying.
His Innovative ideas have resulted in tax trimming, including the automated garbage pick-up, witch saved town a great deal of money.
Larry Quattrone has been an extraordinarily successful businessman for over 45 years. He is the kind of man who is a genuine asset to town. We are living in a small town with great potential. It also has many challenges. Larry Quattrone knows this borough. He is an experienced leader in town.
Mr. Quattrone has obviously shown his strength in leadership in our borough. As councilman he will be able to solve the many problems that face our town. Please join me in voting for Larry Quattrone for borough council on Nov. 6th.
