Letter supporting Sauer in Preston election

Preston is soon to celebrate its Sesquicentennial. One hundred and fifty years of decisions leading into the 21st Century. We come now to another decision the fifteenth of January and as should be in a Democracy, we will decide what awaits us in the future. What will be best for us, our children and our grandchildren?

Many are tired of the arguments back and forth regarding Heartland and will be happy to just get the decision made and move on with life.

It’s to you, I address this letter. The three candidates bring many attributes to the table. I wondered how I’d vote if there was no Heartland issue. I decided to ask myself the following question. If I had a tough decision to make and the answer was not clear cut, where would I go? Which candidate would I approach for advice?

It seems to me that a personal decision many times mirrors a City Council decision. Which man would weigh all the factors involved and reach a level-headed decision? No only for now, this moment, but also for the future. To me, that man is Bob Sauer.
