To the editor:
I read a post recently on social media about the
road less traveled being more difficult because of the unknown
obstacles that set you back. I'm not saying that taking the low road
is always the best choice but staying in the middle, the SAFE path,
is what we are faced with today.
The climate of the times makes that choice for us.
My current journey is that of a candidate for Ward
3 alderman and as a candidate running for office the main goal is
that a candidate must seek the support of constituents and peers. At
the beginning of this process I garnered the support from a large
number of people in the community but some of those have to take the
middle road, the SAFE road. After voicing that support publicly and
with signs that were placed to show support, they have received
threats from a supporter of my opponent of public backlash on social
media and letters to the news outlets.
Yes, I ran against Seth Goodman for mayor but
after that was over he is my mayor and my friend. I have stayed in
contact with him and our alderman regularly about the issues and
concerns regarding city matters.
[to top of second column in this letter]
Over the years have worked closely with the Mayor,
Alderman, and other community leaders sometimes we were in total
agreement and sometimes we disagreed but we always compromised and
did what was best for the community and found a common ground. When
he reached out to me as well as others giving me their support I was
grateful. It's a shame people can not accept that when it comes to
elections choices have to be made.
If you don't like the candidate it doesn't give
you the right to stifle the people that do.
Thank you, Seth, Heidi, and the many others for
your support. I promise if I am elected you will not regret
Candidate Ward 3
Primary February 26th.
