To The Daily Sun,
Reading the newspapers today, I came across an unflattering account of my business and professional life. That's politics.
The writer may even have been guided by concern for the voters of Belknap County and not, as I suspect, a political plant.
Let me set the record straight. I have not cheated anyone. My bankruptcy was rooted in severe medical problems affecting my father and my wife. My interest and knowledge of the health delivery system is not only professional, but deeply personal as well. From a comfortable life to a mountain of debt, there are many who have experienced the upside-down effect which severe illness can cause.
My wife and I go to work every day to support our family and to continue to pay down what we owe.
As to businesses with which I have been involved, the inaccuracies in the letter to the editor about me are many. The problems with a subsidiary company of a parent company with which I helped to run are but one example of bias on the part of the writer.
As to my signs being on state property, I wish that the writer would take a look at all political signs before pointing a finger at me. Temporary signs on state rights-of-way are a six-week fact of life and half of them should be removed within a few days of the primary election.
Please vote on Sept. 13.
Candidate for Belknap County Commissioner
