VOTE JOY VESTAL FOR UCO VICE PRESIDENT
It surprised me when Joy Vestal announced her candidacy for UCO Vice President, and I think she is a great choice. She and Myron Silverman have done a great job coediting the UCO Reporter. What they have produced is there for all to see, and the compliments have been many.
Now, in addition to her Reporter experience with the Village goings-on, she has the experience of having been in very close touch with UCO affairs by having been an active UCO Recording Secretary. She is well qualified to be a UCO vice president, in my opinion.
The naysayers can say what they want––I have seen Joy at work on the newspaper, and no one is more conscientious about keeping the right divide between the paper and UCO. Where did she learn this? I expect from her innate sense of fair play, but also from her 50 years of administrative experience working for Newsday, the sixth largest regional newspaper in the US, covering NYC, Queens and Long Island. When a person by nature keeps the right balance, you don’t always need written rules.
I only hope Joy has the energy and good health to do both jobs. For sure she will bring her expertise, conscientiousness and enthusiasm to them both.
Vote Joy Vestal for UCO VP on March 7!
