Vote Morrissey for county board

Published: Wednesday, Oct. 31, 2012 1:15 a.m. CST

I am writing this letter in support of Wes Morrissey for Lee County Board, District 1. It is good to have a young man, who grew up in this community, get involved in local government. The norm is that most people wait until retirement age to get involved in local government.

Wes has been involved with the Democratic Party as the party liaison and actively worked wherever and whenever needed.

We have an opportunity here to have an intelligent young man get involved. Wes is one of the few that go off to college and return to the local community at a young age.

It is always good to have a mix of young and old in government. Wes will work hard for the people of Lee County and will be an asset on the county board.

Please vote for Wes on Nov. 6.
