Re-elect Sweeney

I first met Jack Sweeney while he served on the Douglas County Board of Supervisors. Jack is a no nonsense type who frequently asked tough questions, which he has carried over to his time now on the Superior City Council. One of the best attributes to have when serving in this capacity is the ability to ask those tough questions. The citizens should expect it, and more importantly, demand it from their elected officials. Merriam-Webster dictionary defines a "Yes-person" as follows: "a person who agrees with everything that is said, especially one who endorses or supports without criticism every opinion or proposal of an associate or superior." Jack is not a yes-person. Jack's opponent may likely fall into this category. On top of that, his opponent serves on the Superior School District Board. As a board member, she has accrued on overall attendance rate for board meetings of 76%. How committed will she be to address city matters? Hopefully more than just three quarters of the time. I encourage the residents of the 4th district to vote on April 2nd for the best candidate, and that candidate is Jack Sweeney.

This is a paid endorsement letter to the editor.
