To the editor:

The culture of Putnam County is one of strong family values and a sense of community. This culture has provided a safe place for people to grow up and move on to their own adult lives. It is also a culture that has, for over 50 years, provided local support to the Putnam County Board of Developmental Disabilities. Brookhill Center has provided services and support to individuals to live, work and play in their own community.

Brookhill Center has responded to this support by continuing to improve the level of services and by maintaining a financially sound organization to serve the needs of those individuals into the future. We have seen the benefits of Brookhill Center first hand and ask you to VOTE YES on Tuesday, May 6.

Grateful that we live in Putnam County,

Jim and Pat Geckle
