Has done what he said

On Nov. 6 we will have a rare opportunity to re-elect an incumbent who has done what he said he would do, is doing a good job in difficult times, is respected by other elected officials and knows how to live within a budget.

Grand Traverse County Sheriff Tom Bensley is that incumbent, and he deserves our votes.

Right person for job

Please vote Kirsten Keilitz for Probate Judge. I have known Kirsten for 15 years. She is a person of integrity, dedication and thoughtfulness. She is committed to serving the community, whether as a past board president for United Way or as a regular volunteer at legal aid clinics. She practiced family law. Now she serves as a referee for the court, where she presides over hearings and makes recommendations to the judge on domestic relations and family law matters — a role that requires the development of judicial skills. She is the right person for the job.

Don't be fooled by ads

Please vote "no" on proposal 6. The TV ads "for" this proposal are incorrect, misleading and are paid for by the billionaire who wants no competition for his bridge. We should not turn down this offer from the Canadian government to pay for the new bridge from Canada to Detroit. What a deal. But you must vote "no" if you want the bridge to be built and paid for by the Canadians. Do not be fooled by these TV ads. Don't let a billionaire legislate via TV propaganda. Vote no on 6.

Dedicated, committed

I have known Tom Bensley for many years and have always found him to be honest, dedicated and committed. He has truly brought a high level of professionalism to the sheriff's department and continues to exhibit outstanding managerial and leadership skills. Tom Bensley is the right person in the right job. We need continued vigilance in our local law enforcement — and with Tom Bensley as the sheriff we can be assured that will happen.

Please join me and vote for Tom Bensley for Grand Traverse County Sheriff.
