Vote for Hunter Taylor on Sept. 13 and breathe a little bit easier

To The Daily Sun,

Congratulations to Pamela Tyson for doing her homework on the candidate for Belknap County commissioner, Mr. Smolin.

When I read his autobiography in The Laconia Sun, questions arose in my head: "All that experience? Couldn't he hold a job?" Pamela's research answered (that for) me. No, he couldn't.

Pamela found the flaws as stated in her letter to The Sun on Aug.  26. I quote her, "Smolin has a checkered and financially irresponsible background." She lists is foibles in detail.

Hunter Taylor is an experienced, thoughtful, competent candidate for commissioner. We need such a person in politics. We all are victims of the Chinese curse, "May you live in interesting times."

Vote for Hunter Taylor and breathe a bit easier.
