Recently Wayny McIlroy , Mayor of the Village of Carthage, endorsed Mike Astafan for Legislature in District 6.  Today, we're proud to announce that the Mayor of West Carthage, has Endorsed Mike Astafan as well.  Mayor Scott Burto stated in his letter of support:

"I am writing to the residents of the Town of Wilna to express my support for Michael F. Astafan as your next Jefferson County District 6 Legislator. Mr. Astafan has been a valuable asset not only to the residents of the Village of Carthage but to the larger Carthage community."

"I have had the honor of working with Mr. Astafan over the last 12 years during his tenure as a Village of Carthage Trustees as well as sitting with him on the Joint Water and Sewer Utility Board and our efforts through RACOG. I have seen first hand his commitment and dedication to the Carthage community. During Mike’s time serving on the Economic Development Corporation of Carthage and the Carthage Development Corporation, we have seen policy changes that have allowed for growth in new businesses in West Carthage and Carthage and benefiting the community as a whole."

"Although I can not vote in the District 6 election, I would ask that you support Michael Astafan on November 8, 2011 as he is the proven candidate committed to bettering the Carthage area. I know not only will the residents of District 6 be well represented but also the greater Carthage community."
