Valinda Bolton Works for Common Good

RECEIVED Sat., Oct. 25, 2008

Dear Editor,
    Valinda Bolton is a proven bipartisan state representative that works for the common good of all of her constituents and will not be a puppet for Tom Craddick and his right-hand minion Terry Keel ["Great Works of Political Fiction,” News, Oct. 17]. Does Donna Keel expect anyone to believe that she does not know Craddick? What’s next: “I don’t know Terry Keel”? Just look at all the groups that have endorsed Rep. Bolton. They did so because she is an intelligent and highly effective legislator. Donna Keel has no legislative experience, is running on the Keel name-recognition platform, and is running a negative, attack-dog campaign that really turns people off. She is doing so because she has no legislative experience to promote, thus she is promoting her government auditor experience. Doesn’t it remind you of the McCain-Palin style of campaigning? District 47 will be best served by re-electing Valinda Bolton.
    The public is not fooled by Gerald Daugherty’s last-minute fix for the Highway 290 problems in Oak Hill which “coincidentally” were announced on the first day of early voting ["Precinct 3: Ye Olde Transportation Debate Takes Spotlight,” News, Oct. 24]. Why is it that it took a formidable challenge to his re-election bid to provide the “quick” fix? Precinct 3 will be better served by Karen Huber, a highly proactive, experienced facilitator of cooperative solutions to development and growth issues. We need a county commissioner that plans and does not react. We don’t need last-minute quick fixes to long-term problems. We need a person that sees the big picture and will work cooperatively to solve issues. That person is Karen Huber for Precinct 3 county commissioner.
