Leith supported for Walnut Township Trustee

Editor,

A couple of weeks ago a friend I like and respect asked me to do him a favor. I was surprised when he asked me to endorse a particular candidate for Walnut Township trustee. I am a Florida resident and as much as I would love to have the PRIVILEGE to vote here I can’t.

He told me I have the respect and ear of some people around here. So as much as I like, owe and respect him, he was asking too much of me without me doing some homework.

I made a lot of phone calls and talked to many people before writing this letter. I talked to both Bill Yates and Doug Leith on the phone at length. I found out that some folks are going to vote for Bill Yates because they know his name, he lives in Millersport and they don’t know anything about Doug Leith. Doug’s signs are in Sonny Dupler’s yard and I judged Doug wrongly on that alone until I did more homework. For my tax dollars I have decided I would rather have the temperament and respectfulness of Doug Leith representing the interest of the majority of Walnut Township.
