Letter to the Editor

Independent Editor,

I am writing this letter to encourage my fellow District 1 residents to support Marlene Webster for County Commissioner in the upcoming election. Over the past few years, I have had the pleasure of working closely with Marlene in the Shiawassee County Addiction Coalition, which she initiated. In the process of this endeavor, I have found Marlene to possess personal characteristics that are badly needed in government today, primarily integrity, compassion, fairness and great leadership skills.

Marlene is a team player and has superb consensus-building abilities. Her broad exposure in our area to issues of poverty, addiction and education (as a member of the Owosso Board of Education) are all abilities needed at the county commission level. We are at a critical juncture in this county in so many aspects and would definitely benefit from having someone of Marlene’s moral character serving in this position.
