DUTCHESS COUNTY, N.Y. -- The Northwest Dutchess Daily Voice accepts signed and original letters to the editor up to 350 words. To submit your letter, e-mail northwestdutchess@dailyvoice.com.

To the editor:

Election season sometimes brings out the worst. We see lies and character attacks on people that often have no basis in fact.

I am proud to support Terry Gipson for state senate because he has been running a positive campaign since day one. As a current Village Trustee and former Town Board member in Rhinebeck, I know Terry Gipson well. Both he and his wife, Michelle, always are working to improve the local community in Rhinebeck and throughout Dutchess County.

This service goes back even before Terry served as a Village Trustee in 2009, when we were struggling with basic infrastructure problems and Terry ran for trustee so that he could tackle them. Terry has been a volunteer firefighter and is a Kiwanis Club member in Poughkeepsie.

Chances are, if you are involved in any community organization or volunteer effort, you likely know and have worked with both Terry and Michelle at some point. When I hear ads claiming he doesn’t care about the local community, I know this is just typical election season nonsense.

This is an easy one. There is no one I know more committed and selflessly dedicated toward improving the public good than Terry Gipson. That’s why I will be voting for him this November to be our next state senator and continue his mission to help the Hudson Valley.
