Voicing support

To the Editor: I will be supporting Darrell Shelton for Navarro County Commissioner for precinct 1.

Darrell has shown a lifetime of commitment to the people of the county through his many years as teacher, and as head of the science department at Corsicana High, he has dealt with budgets, bureaucracy, and people well enough that he was chosen as teacher of the year this year. He also has been involved with the youth expo for many years, both as a volunteer worker and buyer.

But the main reason I support Darrell is he has a real working knowledge of roads and construction, and the equipment used to build them. He has spent his summers for many, many years running heavy equipment and building roads. He understands what it takes to build gravel roads that will last, and his experience will benefit all of us who live on and travel down county roads.

I think Darrell will represent the people of precinct one very well. He is smart and conservative, easy to deal with, and just a dang nice fellow. If that is the kind of guy you can support, I suggest you join my family and me and vote for Darrell Shelton for Commissioner on July 31, or the week before in early voting.

Thank you,

John Paul Plemons
