To the editor:
The constant battle cry during election seasons usually follows this pattern.
The citizens consistently ask for "new blood," "young people with younger ideas."
The cry: Step forward to serve your City.
Raise their salaries so we get "better people" and the younger generation can participate.
Today, two have answered the call. They have taken their private lives and put them aside and stepped into the ring.
Marni Sawicki, Mayoral Candidate for Cape Coral:
A proven professional, business woman, raising two children who attend our Charter Schools.
She is well-informed, articulate, with new ideas to lead this City with grace.
Richard Leon for District 4 - Cape Coral.
A young man, with some previous campaign experience, who has stayed the course continuing to learn to lead. A young man who is willing to sacrifice and to put aside four years of his life to serve others.
Richard has already shown how much he cares. He has worked impacted areas with the American Red Cross, helping others. Family is most important to him.
He has travelled out of our country to learn returning with the spirit to share his knowledge.
Today, we, the citizens of Cape Coral, have the task to recognize what is being offered. Two young people with fresh outlooks wanting civility to return to our great City. We asked them to come. Go to the polls, absentee ballots, early voting and make your voices heard.
Vote Richard Leon, District Four
Vote Marni Sawicki, Mayor
Dolores Bertolini, voter
