Retiring supervisors deserve our thanks

I'm a Ticonderoga resident who certainly is more than satisfied.

French has been Crown Point supervisor the past 14 years. During French's tenure as supervisor the town has secured $1 million in grant money for water and sewer work, improvements at the town-owned campground and boat launch, landfill closure, park renovation, weed control in Eagle Lake, housing rehabilitation, improvements at the Knapp Senior Center and other items.

He also managed to cut the Crown Point's tax rate, no small feat.

"My philosophy has always been that it's not my money, it belongs to the people and they should keep as much of it as possible," French said. "I've done the best I can. That's all I can do."

Dedrick and French are shining examples of public service. While each has dealt with frustration and disappointment at times, they should leave office proud of their accomplishments. We live in better communities today because of them.
