Happy New Year!
Vishnu Patel, Yorktown councilman – My resolution is to hold the town's spending down and to return a part of my salary to the town in 2013. I also want to continue to help the seniors and keep the students in the schools interested in math and science – which is something I have been doing for more than three decades.
Karen Symington Muendell, founder of Yorktown Farmers' Market – My resolution for 2013 is to continue to teach my children the importance of community service, volunteerism, and being kind to others.
Al Avitable, club advisor to the Yorktown Leos Club – In thinking about what to resolve for a new year inevitably your mind goes back to past years and the things you tried that didn't last. You know the usual vanity things like loosing weight and working out. So this year I thought I would make it easy on myself and see if by doing that it will last the whole year and beyond. So I resolve to ignore all those who criticize without offering reasonable solutions to problems and also to work to help those who unselfishly help others.
Bruce Apar, PennySaver Community publisher – After blogging 366 resolutions in 2012 – one for every day of the leap year – I resolve I will not do that again in 2013. I will pursue more cardio, fewer carbs. Happy New Year!"
