Re-elect Richard Dame

Oct 22, 2020

To the editor:
It is with great pride I write this letter in support of re-election of Justice Richard Dame for the Town of Rockland Town Justice. While I am not currently a resident of the Town of Rockland, or Sullivan County I feel it is very important for those who are there to know the true character of this candidate and the asset he is to the local community.
Judge Dame has lived and raised his family in the Town of Rockland for over 50 years. He moved his family to this community to afford his wife and children a better life than that of New York City metro area.
Even though he commuted for years to New York City his children went to Livingston Manor Central School, and his wife worked at the school. They already had ties to the community from his wife's family who also were lifelong residents.
Judge Dame has always been an active member of his community. Whether it be through the church, the fire department, or lending a hand to someone in need. Actually physically working and getting his hands dirty to help with fundraising functions for local residents or lending a hand to anyone in need.
When I was living in the Town of Rockland, I was befriended by Judge Dame and his wife whom I always knew and admired. I attended Livingston Manor Central School with their children. I was going through a very trying set of personal circumstances.They cared and had empathy. I personally cannot thank them enough for their support during what was one of the most difficult times of my life. I'm honored to call them friends.
It is with great pride that I endorse Judge Richard Dame on Row ā€œCā€ the Conservative Party line for his bid for re-election. He is a man of great character and substance. Who embraces his community, served his community in many capacities and is sensitive to today's circumstances.
