It is vital to the health and well-being of our community, that we continue to adhere to recommendations mandated by local, state, and federal officials. As a community, we are all in this together. We can all contribute by limiting social gatherings and being mindful of basic hygiene. Washing hands, covering coughs and sneezes and limiting unnecessary social contact will help stop the spread of COVID-19 caused by coronavirus.

The most valuable resource to this community is our people. When possible, let us extend a helping hand to those in need. Please share any thoughts that you may have to assist our community.

My Wife, Rita, and I have been and will continue to keep everyone in our thoughts and prayers. With everyone’s contribution we will help put an end to this crisis.

Stay safe,

Frank DeMayo
Town of Liberty – Supervisor
