Remember the Keeler recallPublished 5:14pm Thursday, August 2, 2012
To the editor:
Serving one’s country and community to keep it safe and make it a better place to live is a noble goal. It requires honest, unselfish commitment to all.
Thus, it is a great privilege with a heavy responsibility to all the residents to choose wisely the person with an honest commitment to serve the community faithfully for the good of everyone.
If you plan to employ someone to care for your family, your assets and manage your money it seems you would consider all their qualifications. We might look at their education, type and years of experience, their skills and wisdom in management. However, the first item I would require is honesty and faithfulness to their responsibility. The smartest and most skillful person without honesty could deceive and rob you blind. Everyone had to learn their new job at some time. Skill and knowledge can be learned, but honesty is a character trait that comes from a good moral background and upbringing.
Aug. 7 we have an opportunity to select the persons to carefully manage and guide our community in such a way that it will best serve the needs and desires of all the residents in Silver Creek and Keeler townships.
Some folks may say, “This is only the primary.” But if you delay to the November election it will be TOO LATE.
Some of the very important items such as fire, ambulance and police services have become very contentious. It is difficult to understand why some persons in positions of authority have pressed their biased viewpoint so strongly, to the point of eliminating some of our very important services.
Remember when you vote Aug. 7 last year’s Keeler recall and the reason for it!
