I am writing this letter in support of Debra Benko, who is running in the fall election for Commissioner of Ottawa County.
Debra brings to her candidacy a broad background of experience and social service. I have known Deb for more than 25 years, beginning when I was her high school English teacher, and have worked with her since in the areas of communications, language, literacy and small press publictions.
I have always been impressed with the the enthusiasm she has engendered for dependability, insight, success and follow-through from those with whom she worked. Directors of her projects in both the private and non-profit sectors still recognize her as an unmistakable asset to any cause to which she is committed.
I urge all county residents looking for fresh approaches and solutions, both locally and nationally, to support Debra Benko and the rest of the Democratic ticket in this fall's election.
