Educate Yourself and Vote
Editorial by Douglas Patterson
Special to The Lehigh Acres Gazette
As a concerned citizen of Lehigh Acres, I urge you to read those flyers, listen to the phone calls, and when confronted with a person running for office, remember this “I am from Lehigh Acres. Why should I vote for you?” See how fast of a response you get that talks about Lehigh Acres NOT Lee County,
Look at your flyers you get that are associated with a Political Action Committee (PAC). What about the phone call? Is it a call from the real person or is it generated from a support group that is out for gain not associated with the office being selected.
I urge you to educate yourself. It doesn’t matter what political party you belong to, the most important factor we face now is at the very local level. Beware about claims of what they will do if elected, or the claim to clean house if they are elected. Keep an open mind, educate yourself and vote with this We are Lehigh Acres and we will be heard. Please VOTE. “You do count.”
