LETTER: Don't be swayed by mailer against Post

To the Editor:

The Lee County GOP's vitriolic mailer against Chas Post was both shameful and shocking.

I've had the privilege of knowing Chas for his entire life. His parents have been great friends of mine, and he grew up alongside my own children. I've been like a second mother to him and can attest to his character, values and morals.

Chas has offered himself up as a candidate for the Sanford City Council because he wants to make his hometown a better place. We should all applaud young people who are bright enough and engaged enough to step up and take a hand in local affairs. Instead, some in our community are bent on getting down in the gutter by mailing sleazy, personal attacks.

If you received one of these distasteful mailers, please don't let it cloud your view of Chas Post. He's run a positive campaign about improving Sanford, and that's what he'll work toward if he's elected.
