To the editor:Alice Roker picked Diana Quast for a reason.
If you look up the definition of a clerk it says he or she is the chief administrative officer of a town or city. The service a clerk provides is at the core of how the town relates to its residents.
Alice Roker famously has carried out the responsibilities of Town Clerk in Yorktown for more than 25 years with integrity and resourcefulness and deserves all of our respect and thanks. Alice picked Diana Quast as her deputy more than 12 years ago. She did that for a reason. Someone was needed who could carry out the duties of clerk in the same style and fashion as Alice. Someone was needed who could bear the responsibility of the office the same way Alice had for years. Someone on whom the town could count.
Now that Alice is leaving, she has chosen Diana as the person to follow her and continue the service and dedication to the Town of Yorktown that has been the hallmark of the clerk’s office.
Diana is the obvious choice on Election Day - a choice for continuity and integrity. Alice picked Diana Quast - you should too.
