Advance News endorses Ritchie

North Country voters have some important decisions to make Tuesday when they step into the voting booth. There are quite a few political races this year, which is great. Competition is a great thing for democracy.

It is not important whether the person you support has an r, D or X next to their name. What’s important is where they stand on issues that matter to you and what they can do to make the north country a better place to live, work and do business. Educate yourself about the candidates from as many different information sources as you can before casting your vote…

48th State Senate District: I am voting for Sen. Patricia A. Ritchie, R-Heuvelton. I don’t always agree with Mrs. Ritchie, but there is no disputing she is a tireless advocate for the north country. She works very hard to represent the district, which includes St. Lawrence, Jefferson and Oswego Counties. She is extremely responsive to her constituents, and is accessible to them. Her emphasis on lowering taxes and helping businesses create jobs in the region is the attitude we need to succeed. She has a good relationship with Governor Andrew M. Cuomo, which demonstrates that she doesn’t care as much about party politics as she does about getting things done for the people she represents.
