As an elected official, as well as someone who has taught and been a student of government, I know that there are three branches: executive, legislative and judicial. These three branches are not a club, but are meant to provide checks and balances.
Nancy Montgomery, our Putnam County legislator, represents the people who elected her to the Legislature and the people who reside in Philipstown and Putnam County. Nancy was elected to ask questions and to advocate for the people’s interest, not join a club. She has done an outstanding job fighting to retain public health jobs and funding, public safety funding, pushing Putnam to enact Climate Smart initiatives and to establish a Human Rights Commission. Nancy was the first to fund a Drug Resources Coordinator in the Town of Philipstown and to help our Town establish the Philipstown Hub. She made train safety for all of our commuters a reality. Nancy has shown nothing less than honor, integrity and compassion. This is why I endorse her for re-election as our Putnam County Legislator – we need an independent and strong voice for all the people of Putnam.
