Vote for integrity

A vote for Larry Nelson for Leelanau County Probate Judge is a vote for integrity. His professional demeanor, wisdom, and courtroom experience are qualifications needed. I've known Larry Nelson for over 30 years as a County Commissioner and two-year chairmanship. His knowledge of the law is necessary for Probate Court and the overflow from District and Circuit courts, when necessary. A vote for Larry Nelson is a vote for excellence.

More business thinkers

We need more business concept thinkers in our government at all levels. Ross Richardson has proven to be effective as our County Commissioner for the past two years, saving our tax money. He listens to us, as reflected in the poorly handled septage plant issues, clean water issues, and fighting to provide transparencies in our government.

Vote for Ross Richardson.

Don't trust extremists

Don't trust extremist conservative right-wing "tea party" type candidates who want you to believe they can fix government. Vote for common-sense candidates who pledge to work with both sides of the aisle based on knowledge and experience. Please vote for quality, dedication and for those who will work for all of our citizens.

Vote Virg Bernero, governor; Jocelyn Bensen, Secretary of State; John Scrudato, 104th House District Representative; Alton Davis, Supreme Court; Ross Richardson, Grand Traverse County Commissioner; and Mike Stepka, 86th District Judge.

Every vote counts and every vote is needed to keep extremism away from politics.
