Election Letters to the Editor: 10/24/2012

Always helpful

I strongly recommend my colleague, Lynette Wolfgang, for Blair Township Clerk. I have worked with Lynette for over 15 years, and she has always been helpful and knowledgeable. Eight months ago she was appointed as Blair Township Clerk and has been doing a great job. The skills for the job of township clerk demand a full understanding of accounts payable, payroll, elections and maintaining ballot (election) integrity. Lynette has no problem filling this role. She is a well-respected member of the Grand Traverse County Clerk's Association. Please vote for Lynette on Nov. 6.

A voice for citizens

Betsy Coffia, candidate for state representative for Grand Traverse County, will be a voice for all citizens. On Nov. 6, voters have a real choice in their selection of who will represent them in the Michigan House. Betsy will be a passionate voice for working families and the preservation of our clean air and water. Betsy has run a campaign from individual donations, she has accepted no PAC or super PAC funds, and will not take contributions from out of state.

She is beholden to no special interests; she works for you, the citizens of Grand Traverse County.

A new approach

I have had the privilege of practicing law in the 13th Judicial Circuit for many years. In recent years, more and more of my practice in this circuit has been before referees appointed by the elected circuit judges. For the office of probate judge, I believe the voters of Grand Traverse County would best be served by a fresh face and a new approach. Accordingly, because of my knowledge of and professional experience with Melanie Stanton, she has my whole-hearted endorsement for the position of Grand Traverse County probate judge.
