Deserves support

For the past number of years Cheryl Gore Follette has served as a trustee of Northwestern Michigan College. She remains steadfastly supportive of educational opportunities for the betterment of our community while using fiscal responsibility. Being informed on issues regarding commitment to expansion of academics and campus are prime concerns of Cheryl Gore Follette.

She deserves our continued support as trustee of Northwestern Michigan College on the Nov. 2 ballot.

Dedicated public official

I ask you to vote for Ralph Soffredine for county commissioner. I have known Ralph for many years, as an astute mentor and an exceptional role model.

One of Ralph's strong assets is his ability to look at and study any issue in its entirety before making up his mind.

When he casts a vote it is an informed vote representing what is right — not politically right, but what is right for the people he represents.

Ralph is a dedicated public official who will make the important decisions necessary for our county.

I urge you to vote for Ralph Soffredine.

Patience, integrity

In the late 1970s I was fortunate to have been hired by Judge Elizabeth Weaver at the probate court.

While there, I was also fortunate to have met Larry Nelson, who was with the prosecutor's office at that time.

Even then I knew that Larry's demeanor, patience, knowledge of the law, and his integrity would allow him to someday be a great addition to our judicial system.

I still believe such to be true and hope that the "someday" will be now.

Taking the high road

I write in support of Kevin Elsenheimer for district judge. I admire that Kevin is taking the high road in his campaign, in contrast to his opponent, who has taken a different path. This speaks volumes about the integrity of the candidates.

Voters of our region have shown confidence in this fine man by electing him to two different offices, including a state House leadership position.

His experience as an assistant prosecutor in Antrim County has prepared him well to serve as district judge.

I believe the voters of our area will be pleased to elect Kevin Elsenheimer district judge.
