Endorses Clive Anderson for town council for his compassion, strong business sense

To the editor:

As a former resident of Pelham for more than 30 years, it is with great confidence that I recommend Clive Anderson for town council. For some background, I was a New York City police officer who became an entrepreneur in the food industry and in real estate. While my wife and I raised our two boys in Pelham (they both attended Pelham schools), I was active in youth recreational Pelham sports and was a founding member of the Pelham Community Rowing Association.

I met Anderson more than ten years ago, and his sincerity and kindness have always impressed me. I am a bagpipe player, and I played at several events where I saw firsthand Anderson’s heartfelt caring for mourning families. He couples this compassion with a strong business sense. He has turned the Pelham Funeral Home into a strong business that our town can be very proud of. He knows what it takes to build a business and has often commented on the great community of Pelham and the support that he has received here.

Anderson has always worked to bring people together and to make difficult situations better. I have witnessed our present Pelham Councilwoman Maura Curtin work to do the exact opposite. She put up Facebook posts calling out innocent, life-long Pelham residents and businesses regarding a situation that they had absolutely nothing to do with. This should not happen in our close-knit community.

We need leaders who will unite. We need leaders who will work hard with us and for us—not against us.

Clive Anderson is that leader. I can’t think of anyone more qualified to guide this town with an intelligent, caring and hard-working hand.

I urge you to vote for Clive Anderson on Nov. 7.
