Local candidates should lead by example

Letter to the Editor

 


“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” —Theodore Roosevelt

I challenge our candidates to tell us their ideas, their plans, their dreams for our town. I challenge our candidates to speak to their truths and not the alleged defects of character of other candidates. We are better than that and we have young people who look to us as examples. LEAD BY EXAMPLE and share your truths and your dreams rather than trashing other community members. So, what are you all about? Let’s hear it.
