Republican senator supports Democratic justice candidate

Editor, OBSERVER:

Ed Schintzius is running for the office of justice in the town of Hanover, and he has my support.

I have known Ed for more than 30 years. Ed was a long-serving police officer in my hometown of North Tonawanda. Having got my professional start in that city’s government, I quickly saw that Ed was an asset to the police force and the community at large. He was always respected as an upstanding citizen.

Ed wants to continue to make a difference in Hanover. He is concerned for his neighbors and wants them to enjoy a good quality of life. As a Justice, he would work hard and treat Hanover’s citizens fairly. With his law enforcement background, he would bring a unique and valuable perspective to the job.

Thank you for considering Ed Schintzius for Town Justice in this year’s election.
