To the editor:

I would like to tell you about myself briefly and why I am working for Jim Schultz for mayor of Independence. I have been in politics since the early 1980s, when I first worked to help Bill Baker to be elected to the Independence City Council, then helped when he ran for mayor and then county executive. I worked for Ron Stewart for two terms of mayor of Independence. Also, Rene Paluka on the City Council.

I think Jim Schultz has the experience of 12 years on the council, plus being mayor pro tem for four years. Just because his opponent has gotten money to put signs in the yards does not make her qualified to run the city of Independence.

People, please think hard about this point. Signs do not make someone qualified to run a city. Experience counts!
