No more status quo, controlling ‘club’

I want to thank the chamber for holding a debate with the mayors office and commissioners.

More people need to know who is running for office and what they stand for. I want to say that after listening to what the three candidates for mayor had to say, and also knowing what is happening in our town, I will support Jerry Prepejchal for mayor.

The reason, his experience and an understanding of the problems and issues that we face in Harlingen.

Many citizens feel the same way about one issue. And that is a special group or “club” control things in this area and they like to keep it that way.

Therefore nothing changes for those that are not in that club. In reading a recent letter to the VMS by former commissioner Robert Leftwich, I have to agree with him.

It has been said that people need to get involved and informed about the issues in this area. I couldn’t agree more.

People need to get out and vote and not for the candate that has the most attractive sign or money.

We do have some good people out there that want to make your town a better place.

It’s going to take some changes though to achieve that.

Vote. It’s your right and your duty.
