New direction needed In Hobart

Two challengers, Mike Hoeft and Dave Lewis, face long-term incumbents on the Hobart Village Board. Both challengers have private sector experience - both call for smaller, more efficient local government, a sentiment that residents all share.

Recently the voters in Hobart received a letter from the Village Board declaring the problems in Hobart center around our neighbors the Oneida. The problems in Hobart do not begin and end there - they begin and end with a dysfunctional board who appear to be continually fighting everyone including their own residents.

I have personally asked the incumbent candidates when they last sat down with the Oneidas to discuss collaboration and joint ventures? The answer was ? "not for many years." You have to wonder why they have a full-time administrator dedicated to Indian Affairs when they have no intention of talking to them.

It is time to put representatives of the people on the Village Board.

This spring Hobart citizens have an opportunity to start in a new direction. We need lower taxes and responsible leadership that puts the citizens first. Join me and vote for a change on April 2.
