Letters to the editor | Time to pass baton

Please vote for Michael Pipe and Mark Higgins on Nov. 3.

Higgins is a neighbor, friend and all-around great guy. I trust him to listen to others and work well with everyone to the benefit of all Centre County residents. It is wonderful that a man of such experience and compassion is willing to serve as county commissioner — he deserves your vote.

Voting for Higgins also gives Pipe a chance of leading our county government. As many have written in these pages, Commissioner Pipe is a young man of outstanding talent — just the kind of person we want to make our government work for us. I have met Pipe and was deeply impressed by his wisdom and knowledge: He knows county government inside and out.

The other commissioners have given many years of service, but it’s time to pass the baton to a new generation. Pipe is ready to lead, and Higgins will support him with sage advice and a fresh perspective. Vote Pipe and Higgins!
