Culhane has record of dedication, compassion

Recently I received a disturbing rumor questioning Carol Culhane’s reputation. This rumor questioning her character is groundless and everyone I have spoken with agrees, because they know of Carol’s high integrity and work ethic.

I am deeply honored to write a letter of support for Carol Culhane as Town Supervisor of Town of Gaines. It is not only because we have the same surname, because I am related to her husband Jerry (my second cousin), an honorably discharged two-time Vietnam Veteran of the United States Marine Corps, but also because I have known Carol for more than 30 years to be a true professional who practices service above self.

She has done more as a civilian to support veterans than anyone I know. She has utilized her self-taught artistic talent, sensitivity, and compassion to support veterans consistently. She uses her leadership skills to promote enhancement of all veterans of all eras and citizens of Gaines.

Carol has done all of the artwork related to several committees and boards I have chaired including the Vietnam Veterans Memorial of Greater Rochester and the Gold Star Families Memorial in White Haven while I was serving as Executive Assistant to the President at RIT.

Carol has donated her talents, time, and treasure to veterans and all fellow citizens. I encourage you to affirm Carol’s hard work and integrity for Gaines by voting for her as your Town Supervisor. She is your best choice.
