To the editor:
With the county elections up soon, I would like to personally thank two of those candidates for being available to all of our area, Theresa Garza Ruiz and Curt Dougherty. Both have personally viewed the flood water with me. Our county needs people who are available to all.

Levasy is where I live, and that is a rural area where police and fire protection are not as well funded as in the Kansas City metro area. Yet, with people like Theresa and Curt, we will have solid leaders in office.
