Need for clean politics
The October 20 Kingston Times article about the video of Jennifer Schwartz Berky’s traffic stop brings to our attention the need in our country and community for clean politics. The Daily Freeman reported that the officer who pulled Jennifer over was the nephew of her opponent and the video was held for six months, only to be released on the eve of the election. This type of timing calls into question the political motivations behind this act.
I have known Jennifer for a number of years, as she has volunteered her time and incredible mind to various tasks within our community. Jennifer is honest, intelligent, kind and hard-working. She has dedicated countless hours of service to our city and its residents, and it is evident from her work that she is passionate about serving the people of Kingston.
Rather than being swayed by dirty politics, I encourage the residents to vote for a candidate whose record of dedicated service proves her commitment to our community, Jennifer Schwartz Berky.
