Don’t vote for a `yes’ man

In response to both Patti Clapper’s earlier letter and Lisa Hershey’s letter on Tony Hershey, I agree with everything they said.

Tony’s love for this town and the community shows in everything he does. I had the pleasure of working with Tony and the council on the new ARC, and even though we didn’t always agree he made us do our homework. And look at the results – it’s great!

I cannot vote in the election, but if I could, the one I would vote for is Tony Hershey. You know where you stand with Tony – he’s honest, stands up for what he believes in and his heart is with this community. This is not a job to Tony, it’s a passion to make this town continue to be a great place to live.

Some people want councilmen or commissioners who are “yes” men that they can work to get what they want. I personally want someone who will stand up for what he believes in and cares for what is right, even if it goes against me, and I believe Tony is that man.

I for one say “Thanks, Tony” for a job well done and for being the person you are. I really appreciate all you have done for the community and hope to see you continue on.

Please, vote for the candidate who really cares about you and your community. Please, vote for Tony on June 3.
