LETTER: ‘Arnie’ will be missed at Onondaga Lake

To the editor: Liverpool, specifically Onondaga Lake, will be missing a very prominent figure. The recent plan, after retiring with 40 years at Roth Steel and acquiring a pacemaker/defibrillator, was to move from Liverpool to Auburn, Maine to join family in late October. Lynn Arnold, known to everyone as Arnie, was seen on a regular basis riding his bike up and down the paths at Onondaga Lake, weather permitting. Last summer, he clocked an amazing 2,500 miles on that path, biking faithfully, sometimes with his good friend, Vince. His goal for this year was 3,000 miles (at the age of 74), but Arnie’s health prevented him from reaching that goal.

LETTER: Venesky for supervisor

LETTER: What the codes office really does

To the editor: At a Cicero preliminary budget review and public hearing held Oct. 14, information was presented with reference to the Department of Zoning and Planning (Codes). It was stated that the codes department only issued three new home construction building permits and as a result the director’s job should be eliminated.

LETTER: Burtis for Legislature

LETTER: Burtis for Legislature To the editor: I am writing to show my endorsement for Tim Burtis for Third District, Onondaga County Legislature.

LETTER: Another vote for Venesky

To the editor: I want to share my reasons that I will be voting for Mark Venesky. During his tenure on the Cicero Town Board, he has demonstrated a genuine talent for being able to grasp the challenges facing our town and the courage to make the hard choices that are not always the most popular ones. Over 15 years I have been to numerous budget meetings and have seen firsthand the decisions that are needed to balance the services that we expect while and holding taxes in check.

LETTER: Boyke for supervisor

To the editor: In 2011 when Cicero's assessments went up, like almost everyone, especially waterfront owners, I was one of the homeowners to see a huge increase in my assessment. What a mess Judy Boyke inherited when she took office as Supervisor in 2010-11. A full assessment was already started and she was unable to slow it down. Not only did she inherit that, she had to deal with an unreasonable budget and stripped fund balances. The town of Cicero's credit rating was in the toilet.
