Letters to the editor | Keep government honest

In February, Commissioner Michael Pipe proposed a ban on circulating nominating petitions for political candidates in county government office buildings.

Commissioners Steve Dershem and Chris Exarchos were not in favor of the ban. Their position concerns me greatly. It seems like a no-brainer that county government employees should not circulate petitions during working hours, or in county buildings for that matter.

I’m throwing my support behind the two candidates who aren’t part of the good ol‘ boys club: Pipe and Mark Higgins. As stated earlier, Pipe has voiced support for making government more transparent. Higgins has also stated that county government needs to be cleaned up.

Vote for Higgins and Pipe for good, honest government.
