To the Editor:

Sanford is at a dangerous crossroads. Every year, local business finds it harder to prosper, bringing fewer people to our downtown and less revenue for those businesses. More storefronts are vacant. Our leadership has taken steps to generally improve the appearance of our streets and neighborhoods, but they are treating symptoms — not the deterioration.

We need leaders with vision, energy and ability to focus our efforts to improve the business climate. At the same time, there needs to be commitment to our history and traditions, and family and community.

Chet Mann embodies these attributes. His experience in business and community service will create solutions for Sanford’s successful future.

Vote Mann for Mayor!

Charles C. Baker Jr.
