Editor, Times-Union:

We are very fortunate as citizens of Kosciusko County to have Tony Ciriello running as candidate for the County Council seat to represent District 3.

Tony can bring his expertise to the Council in so many ways from his experiences of serving our county in the past. We as voters need to realize how lucky we are to have some one as Tony Ciriello that is willing to offer his services to our county. From patrol officer to DARE officer, shift supervisor, fire/arson investigator, deputy coroner, the list could go on and on.

Tony also has the leadership qualities to be effective in our County Council. Tony is a conservative in his values and understands the fiscal policy needed to be an effective council member.

As a member of the agriculture business community in our county, I strongly endorse Tony as he will provide leadership for a pro-business environment. It is quite obvious that Tony is the most qualified and experienced candidate running for any county office or position that is on the ballot in this election.

Please do our county a favor by voting for Tony Ciriello.
