mailmanTo the residents of the Town of Lansing,

I am a Lansing resident of 63 years and have seen my neighborhood transforming from a sleepy rural agricultural area to a much busier rural/suburban residential/agricultural community. While this transformation has taken place, Lansing has remained a quaint, safe, pleasant place to live. It is my desire to keep it safe and pleasant. Over many of these years it has been my pleasure to know and consider myself a friend of Dick Costello. He has Helped me with many issues over the years and helped my parents oversee their farm here in Lansing for several decades.

Trustworthy, honest, and dependable are the primary qualities that come immediately to mind when I think of Dick. In the past I have had emergency situations with my aging parents and in those situations. I have depended on Dick and his lovely wife Sharon for help. They have always come through and provided any help possible no matter what inconvenience my needs may have caused them. I trust Dick with my family members wellbeing, the care of my property, and my general interests, and believe he will insure the interests and the protection of Lansing residents as well as he has my own. He is a down to earth, serious person who makes no false pretenses about himself or others. I know I can depend on him for the unvarnished truth.

Dick has been a resident of Lansing for several decades and knows the people, their attitudes, needs, and the locality well. He served the public for many years as a hunting safety instructor and was the Golf Pro for Cornell University for several decades. As such he has interacted with very diverse groups of people from all walks of life, both locally and nationally. I believe he is capable of fair honest judgment in matters involving all demographics and would be a tremendous asset to our community.

In summery I highly recommend Dick for Lansing Judge and believe he will insure the continued safety and pleasant living environment that I so cherish.
