Hochul would be great as lieutenant governor

Kathy Hochul is an excellent choice for lieutenant governor. Back in 2007, when she became the Erie County clerk, the improvements at the Department of Motor Vehicles were astonishing. She instituted more convenient hours, the lines were reduced and somehow the staff was friendlier and more accommodating. After she left, a slow deterioration began and now we are back to square one, especially at the Eastern Hills office.

Later, as a congresswoman, Hochul assisted me with a federal pension issue. She appointed a staff member to work on the problem. He dealt with me using what I call the Kathy Hochul friendliness and caring technique. I was kept informed while he got a quick and favorable resolution for me.

Western New York will be well served with Hochul. She is a proven fighter for local issues and an innovator on delivering and improving government services. She does not give up. Because of my personal dealings with Hochul, I know she expects the best from the people around her, and is inspired to serve her constituents with their needs. When was the last time you encountered a politician like that?
