Barb Rice has qualities needed in a legislator

To the editor:

I urge all voters to vote for Barbara Rice for Franklin County Legislature in the upcoming election, Nov. 5.

As the sixth generation of her family to live and work in Saranac Lake, Barb knows and understands the needs of local people.

Barb is very smart, hard working, determined and straightforward. As a successful business owner, Barb has real money and decision-making experience. She knows how to manage tough budget issues.

Because she is willing to work hard to continue on the Saranac Lake village board, if elected to Franklin County Legislature, too, Barb will use her village and county roles to bring together county and local elected officials. She will be a tough, informed and experienced representative for all of us.

Again, I urge you to vote for Barbara Rice for Franklin County Legislature. She has the savvy and work ethic we need in these hard times.
