Tonawanda News — Bob’s long and distinguished military service and time as first responder during and after 9/11 are laudable. He’s every bit the stand up guy.
However, Beverly’s experience on the joint Tonawanda-North Tonawanda Gateway Harbor Commission is a good start in fostering more inter-city communication and cooperation. Add in her time as an appointee on the city’s Waterfront Commission and you have a background better suited to the task of helping guide a municipal government.
Narrowly, we recommend voters pick Beverly Loxterman as their at-large representative.A NOTE ON THE PROCESS • The Tonawanda News editorial board, members of which are listed in the masthead on this page, evaluated a variety of factors in reaching a consensus on these endorsements.
