A man of integrity

I am writing to encourage voters in Traverse City to vote for Michael Estes for Mayor on election day.

I have found Michael to be a man of integrity who stands by his word. He is a hard worker who desires the best for the city and the citizens it serves. He is also not afraid to explore new ideas in search of innovative solutions to old problems.

As you step into the voting booth, ask yourself if you want proven leadership that is capable of getting results. Then, vote for Michael Estes.
