To the Editor:

I am a resident of Ledyard, New York, where Rose Belforti is refusing to sign same-sex marriage licenses (“Anti-Gay Marriage NY Town Clerk Wangles Extraordinary Accommodation,” by Duncan Osborne, posted online on Sep. 30; updated on page 2W). I went to the September town board meeting and requested, along with many others, that she resign.

Since then, I have been active in Ed Easter’s write-in campaign to defeat her in November. Easter decided to oppose Rose after attending the last town board meeting. She will appear on the ballot, endorsed by the Republican Party.

Letters of support and/ or donations can be sent to: Elect Ed Easter, PO Box 153, Aurora, New York 13026.
