To the editor:
I was born in Independence and have lived here all my life. I’m proud of the historical significance our town has and will support community members who want to continue to make a positive difference.
I served 12 years on the Independence Board of Education, and during that time I had an opportunity to work with some very fine individuals. Jim Schultz is one of those people who was always there to support our efforts. He was involved in YouthFriends, he could be counted on to help out with Project Shine, and he has served on various school-related committees. His 12 years as a council member give him the background knowledge and experience that it will take to be an excellent mayor.
I plan on casting my vote for Jim and encourage you to consider it as well.
