At last night's caucus, Dryden Democrats nominated David Makar to run for Dryden Town Board. After nearly two years in his new home on Slaterville Road
and building his website design and development company 544 Productions
, Dave has been looking for ways to work in the community. He recently joined the Varna Volunteer Fire Department and after many conversations with Dryden democrats including Simon St Laurent, Martha Robertson, Mike Lane, Kathy Zahler and myself, he has decided to run for a seat on the Town Board. Among the issues Dave is concerned with are strengthening existing community centers, economic development, particularly around the Rt 13/Rt 366 intersection and affordable, universal high-speed internet access throughout the Town of Dryden. I didn't plant that last one. Remember Dave's a web developer. He gets it that internet access is an economic issue for Dryden residents.
Check out Dave's blog Dryden is Home
for stories about his participation in Women Swimmin'
(to benefit Hospicare), fishing
, and gardening
We'll be arranging opportunities for Dryden voters to get to know Dave over the next few weeks. If you can help with the campaign, please contact Simon St Laurent.
