It is apparent that Election Day is drawing near. Signs are popping up and ads blanket TV stations. Sadly, many of the local positions have been ignored due to buzz of the congressional and presidential campaigns. One of those is the race for the Elkhart County Council.
I feel that with the economy still down and finances tight, we need a leader who will fight for true fiscal responsibility and limited government. That leader is Tom Stump. He has proven himself to be an independent thinker, not bound by traditional party lines. As the president of the Goshen City Council, he has put forward real cuts in the place of tax increases. That is what we need to do on all levels of government. I believe that he is a man of integrity and I respect his stand on spending and other important issues. I urge you to join with me in voting Tom Stump for Elkhart County Council.
