Letter: Vote for both sides: Schwab and Kaufmann Op-Ed · October 05, 2012
I expect candidates for public office to earn my vote by demonstrating qualities of hard work and commitment to quality, irrespective of their party affiliation.
Due to their long and dedicated service to the community, personal achievements in the university classroom, support for public education and having excelled in their respective fields of work, I will be voting for Jeff Kaufmann for Cedar County Board of Supervisors and Dick Schwab for State representative.
Both are hard-working, open-minded and have proven track records. Both have many years of experience and wisdom. Jeff is a Republican and Dick is a Democrat, but both deserve our votes.
