Letters to the Editor: Election 2017: Bill Braine for Councilman on the Town Board

September 21, 2017

I am writing in support of Bill Braine for Councilman on the Town Board.

I serve with Bill on the Economic Development Advisory Committee where he was unanimously elected as Chairman. At E.D.A.C. we worked to create a revitalization plan the town can rally around. We call it “Cornwall Rising”. Maintaining Cornwall’s quality of life is important and Bill has a great vision for how to do that. Part of the Cornwall Rising plan is the creation of a pedestrian plaza and other placemaking projects that enhance our quality of life here in Cornwall.

Because of Bill we now we have a strong plan and are finalizing a concept illustration, a list of potential funding sources, and are preparing to write grants to fund the next phases. Bill’s leadership in interviewing planning firms and working with Supervisor Randazzo (who is running for re-election along with Carla Castillo both of whom I also support) as helped to move this project forward.

Cornwall needs forward thinking, energetic, intelligent leaders who can move important projects forward. Bill is a true professional and has also has had a successful career with a major Fortune 500 company which will bring some outside perspective and views to this critical town board position.

Planning is vital to make sure the community buys in to economic development initiatives, and Bill does it very well.

I look forward to supporting Bill on the Town Board and urge you to vote for him on November 7.

Brian Hunt
