To the Editor: I will be supporting Darrell Shelton for Navarro County Commissioner of Precinct 1.
I have known Darrell for almost 40 years, and I have no hesitation in recommending him...
He is not a politician but an honest, hardworking man with the leadership needed for the job. He has lived in this precinct for 45 years and is well acquainted with the area and its problems.
Darrell is not a big talker but is instead a person of action. He has been involved with the Navarro County Youth Expo for years as a volunteer worker and as a buyer. I have worked with him in the Christmas in Action program, and this past year he volunteered his time to travel to Joplin, Mo. to assist in the tornado cleanup along with our church.
Darrell has spent many years serving our community as a teacher, and as a result of his hard work he was chosen earlier this year as the Corsicana Education Foundation's Teacher of the Year from CHS. He was also the CHS science department head for a number of years where he gained experience in dealing with annual purchasing budgets.
The main reason that I am supporting Darrell is because of his real working experience in road construction using heavy equipment. He has spent 25 years of summer job time building roads, parking lots, dams and concrete pads while gaining experience in the operation of bulldozers, backhoes, motor graders, scrapers, water trucks and compactors. This is true experience ...
I know that Darrell will do a fine job...
He is a true leader, easy to work with, and will be fiscally conservative...
I hope you will join me and my family in supporting Darrell Shelton for Commissioner on Tuesday, July 31.
To the Editor: In these economic hard times it is important that all voters exercise their rights as American citizens and vote their convictions. So many people think their “one” vote doesn’t count. This is far from true. With the upcoming run-off election it is even more important. There are some very good people running and it may be hard for some to make up their minds and maybe not even vote. In the race for County Commission Pct. 1 this is particularly the case. Both candidates are basically intelligent and personable people. We must look at their qualifications to make our decisions. They both have long and distinguished service to the community. As Commissioner it is important that we select someone that can keep our roads safe and maintained but he also needs a strong sense of business as he will be working with the Commissioner’s Court making decisions that effect everyone in the county and the taxes we pay.
Jason Grant meets all these qualifications and deserves the opportunity to serve as the next Commissioner of Precinct 1.
