My name is Lynne Durant I am formally announcing my candidacy for St. Lawrence County Legislator in District 13. I am a Democrat and I'm running on the Our Community ticket.
As a lifetime resident of District 13, I am familiar with the character and interest of our community and I'm prepared to be an advocate for our needs on the legislature. My husband, Tim, and I have raised our two grown daughters here and we have the pleasure of seeing our two grandchildren raised here as well. I currently work at SUNY Potsdam as an administrative assistant and I have worked for NYS for 23 years. I have been a union activist for 20+ years. I currently am Vice Chair on SUNY Potsdam Childcare Center Board of Directors. My work and volunteer experience provides me with skills such as budget preparations/planning, negoatiation, creating networks, problem solving and most importantly, listening - a skill I will put to use as your legislator.
I am running for District 13 legislator to represent our community and to advocate for our common interests. We have many issues to deal with - increasing revenues and promoting economic development, providing adequate resources to children and families, and supporting public safety.
If elected, I will bring an open-mindedness that will allow for a bi-partisan approach to getting things done. I will bring my lifelong knowledge of our community and my budgeting, planning, and negotiating skills to work for you. Please allow me the opportunity to be the advocate for not only our district but our St. Lawrence County community. I pledge to you that I will work hard for you and hope that you will put your trust in me.
