To the Editor:

It is at times such as this that I find an exciting and renewed hope in regards to the future. I cannot think of many things better that give to me renewed hope than when our younger generation steps forward with the desire to begin putting their time, talents and vision to work for the benefit of society.

Chet Mann comes from a strong family of several generations of commitment to public service. I have had the privilege of knowing his grandparents, Mr. & Mrs. Tommy Mann Sr., and his parents Mr. & Mrs. Tommy Mann Jr. I know of the outstanding family values that each of these have shared with Chet. They have also taught and demonstrated to Chet the value of service and commitment to the community. Chet has demonstrated his desire and commitment to continue these family instilled values of public service through his involvement with various organizations, civic groups and his church.

After moving on from the family business, Chet has demonstrated his commitment to Sanford and Lee County by investing in downtown Sanford through the opening of his own business.

It is the continued development of his talents and business skills, his youthful and forward looking vision, his strong family and social values and his enthusiastic and youthful energy that leads me to publicly place my support behind the campaign of Chet Mann for Mayor of Sanford North Carolina.
