You have permission to vote Democrat

To the Editor:

Recently I have heard folks say things like, “My daddy” or “Momma” would “roll over in their grave if I don’t vote for all the Republicans like we always have, but I’m sure not happy with some of them this year.”

To those folks, I say, give yourself permission to vote for a Democrat or two if you agree more with their record, or their stance on the issues, or their personal character.”

It would not mean you are no longer Republican, or no longer conservative; it just means for this election, for specific offices, you are supporting an individual ... a neighbor ... whom you believe will best serve the needs of our county, our schools, our region or our state.
