Recently, Julie Russell wrote a letter in support of the candidacy of Merlin Van Buren. I would like to add to that support. Over the years I have known Merlin, he has been unfailingly honest, kind and trustworthy, not to mention competent, intelligent, open-minded, pragmatic and creative in looking at ways of accomplishing goals. In my experience, he would be an excellent representative for our area of the state and someone who would make sincere efforts to work with those of differing opinions. Our state and country sorely need representatives with this level of integrity.
