To The Daily Sun,
I am writing in regards to multiple negative letters published against my husband, Jonathan Smolin, who is running for the Belknap County commissioner position. As a mother, a registered voter, an active registered nurse, and a taxpayer of Belknap County, I am equally concerned with the future of local politics. I encouraged and supported my husband's decision to run for the county commissioner position in Belknap County.
I recognize that the court documents mentioned in past press publications make my husband's decisions appear questionable. I am also aware that these documents are missing a lot of the details.
— They do not explain why my grandfather was living with me, my husband, and two infants when he had six living adult children with homes of their own and no dependent children to take care of.
— They do not explain why my grandfather put his land in my husband's name.
— They do not explain why my husband and I had to file bankruptcy.
— They do not mention the $225,000 stolen from us.
— They do not acknowledge the consequence of helping the elderly out and then having to deal with entitled adult children.
— They do not mention the daily sacrifice to our family for taking care of an elderly loved one.
I was taught to always be there for my family and friends in need, to always be honest, to have integrity and to stand by my word. In today's world these qualities are lacking, and unfortunately my extended family has proven that to me. However, I'm not deterred by one batch of bad apples and my boys are being taught that these things are what matter as well as the Ten Commandments of the Bible and that they are not entitled to anything they haven't worked for.
I believe my husband's experience and knowledge will benefit the local politics. He is not a trained politician. He has not been educated to tell you one thing to your face to gain your vote and then do the opposite of what he has promised. If anyone has a question or concern about his past situation, ask him. He is an open book and anyone who knows him is well aware of anything that has been printed in the press the past few weeks.
Lawyers are masters of manipulation. Don't let yourself be manipulated by the retired lawyers who are trying to bring dirty politics to our small communities within Belknap County.
