It is close to election time again and we have some very important issues with in Oswego County Clerk’s Office.
For more than 20 years, this office was run by George Williams. George past away recently and I am sure he will be missed by family and friends.
The Oswego County Clerk’s Office is in a big mess and could end up being very costly to the taxpayers. The public taxpayer needs to wake up. How long are we going to let this go on?
Twenty years of Republican control in this office has shown just how dangerous it is for the taxpayer. There should be term limits for any office. Our future depends on it.
Phil Vasho has been nominated by the Democratic party to fill the position of county clerk. Phil has years of experience serving as a legislator in Oswego County, giving him the understanding of how this office works.
During his time as a legislator, he served on the records committee and later on the consumer affairs committee. He worked on Oswego County budgets. He was also a business agent for a construction company. He works well with people and is a straight shooter.
Phil is a local man, a taxpayer, and also a family man. Phil understands the issues that are going on within the clerk’s office. taxpayers. He was never afraid to cross lines to do what was needed to see that the taxpayers’ rights came first and I believe that attitude will continue.
