Tonawanda News — Hard to believe
Beverly Loxterman, recent candidate for North Tonawanda alderman, sent an email about her experiences walking door to door in the recent campaign. She found a significant number of single females and young mothers who are not registered to vote. She had voter registration forms and asked if they would like to register.
“The usual response was ‘No, my vote doesn’t make a difference.’ Then sometimes I would say something like, ‘Don’t you want to have a say in your children’s future?’ They’d say ‘No, there’s nothing I can do about that, they’ll have to deal with it like I am dealing with.’”
What an awful, but true comment.
Frankie “Don” Fronczak died this past week, a veteran from the Korean Conflict and a dedicated American Legion member. Some will recall his Village Inn Bar on Oliver Street, but most will recall the joy and fun he spread when he entertained, singing in the style of Frank Sinatra, at DeGraff Hospital, Canal Fest and other venues. He was tireless in his efforts to help others and he’ll be missed.
If you vote by absentee ballot but die before the election, your vote still counts.Contact community editor BarbaraTucker at 693-1000,ext. 4110 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
