As a long-standing member of Macedon Village Pride, I have seen the determined and hard work that has been accomplished to make our village a better place to live in.

I have seen neighbors gather to celebrate the peace and quiet of our Macedon Canal Park with its lovely Butterfly-Nature Trail. I have also seen them come to the many functions we have had in celebration of a place worth keeping. Although we do not live in the village, my husband and I have adopted it as a place of refuge and strength of purpose. We have expanded our circle of friendship in countless ways through this experience, and know how difficult this organized intent to not only destroy the Village of Macedon, but also the reputation and determined energy of our mayor, Marie Cramer, with their vicious assaults.

If when it comes time to vote, please consider the paths that have been traveled to destroy a good thing — the village. Count the blessings you now have and multiply them by the courage it has taken for one women to stand against a group that would destroy that which she and many others have worked for so diligently.

It is my prayer that the village shall return to normal after June 10, and the two turncoats who now seemingly represent all of the village people on the Macedon Village Board shall be succeeded by those who truly care about all of the people in the village proper.
