Letter to the Editor: Gratitude for 2 great gentlemen

Dear Editor,I do not want to get into a debate with anyone but I would like to say a few things about the ruckus over Senator Michael Nozzolio and Bruce Bonafiglia.I have worked with both men in different capacities most of my working life. I am on neither of their payrolls nor do I gain for myself by my association with them. I think Seneca Falls, Seneca County and this area has no greater friends or supporters then these two gentlemen. Both men could live anywhere they want to. Neither had to return to Seneca County nor help make this the wonderful area it is.Why is it when someone just wants to help we have to tear down, cry foul and deride them for their efforts. What have you done to make our community better? Never have I know anyone turned away when these men are approached for help.I wonder why no one can just say thank you. Why do we have to look for ulterior motives?I would like to say thank you Bruce and Senator Nozzolio for making my community a better place. Thank you for making Seneca County your home and being such an important part of it. I am very proud to know you both.Sincerely,Frances T. BarbieriSeneca Falls, NY
