Why we vote for Johnny Williams | News, Sports, Jobs
For the publisher:
It is with great pleasure that we write this letter in support of Johnny Williams’ campaign for a seat on Harrietstown City Council.
The slogan Johnny uses for his campaign, “Commitment to the community”, couldn’t be more perfect. This beautifully sums up Johnny’s take on his upbringing and keen interest in giving back to the people and places that forged him as a man.
When asked why Johnny decided to show up, he replied directly and frankly: “It’s time,” again for Johnny to repay the debt he feels he owes to his fellow citizens. Along with his brother and business partner, Johnny owns two core businesses in this community, and while others would focus solely on survival and profitability at this time, Johnny chose to give back his position.
The popular 7th Annual Turkey Trot event that he co-leads raised over $ 120.00 to benefit the Saranac Lake Interfaith Pantry and the Saranac Lake Student Needs Fund. People give generously to this event because of the causes that benefit, but also because of who asks. Johnny is a respected and trusted businessman, always impeccable in word and deed.
The pandemic has been difficult for everyone. Businesses have been shut down and battered by staffing issues, supply issues and tough restrictions. Without being intimidated by the challenges, Johnny chose to reinvest in his business with significant aesthetic and functional improvements. Who else in the community sees an opportunity when the horizon ahead remains murky and unclear? We need that kind of leadership for our city.
Please join us in voting for Johnny Williams on November 2nd.
