I am proud to support Gary McGrane for selectman in Jay.

A man of high integrity, knowledge and experience, he has served his constituents with dignity as a Franklin County Commissioner for more than 25 years.

He understands the complexity of local government and applies thoughtful solutions to difficult problems. He is accessible, and he listens and respects the opinions of people on all sides of any issue.

He applies his experience, knowledge and sound reasoning in his decision making for the betterment of the residents of his community. He takes time to explain his reasoning after coming to a difficult decision.

As a selectman, his proven leadership and problem-solving abilities will benefit the community.

I hope others will join me in supporting good local government in Jay and vote for Gary McGrane for selectman.

The election is April 25, but absentee ballots are available March 24.

Paul Gilbert, Jay
