Our community is facing many challenges. At the same time our entire country is deeply divided. We need to listen to one another and come together as a community. Those on the "other side" of our political divides are not our enemies. The real threat is from those who work to divide us.
I am working to elect Max Mania because he understands this. As county commissioner Max will listen and work with all of us, regardless of our politics. I know that Max has integrity and a sense of community service that is a part of everything he does. I want to see Max in a position of leadership in Benton County. While there are some other good candidates I am voting for Max because, as an independent, he will work hard and respond to the community, not to a list of donors.
We need leadership with good ideas and the ability to bring people together.
