Hats off to Ales Campbell (remember that spelling) in her run for Walker County sole commissioner Nov. 6.
Although a former Dr. Shaw supporter, I would have been hard-pressed who to support had she ran in the primary against he and the current administration. Both stand for the same needs, needs not currently coming out of LaFayette like transparency in governance, lower taxes, lower indebtedness, higher job growth and honest debate on Walker county issues.
Being a “write-in” candidate (there are even hoops to jump through with the state for that designation) is a time-honored American political oddity, and used honorably. Candidates such as President Eisenhower won the day, at least in part, with a write-in vote in Massachusetts. Ales Campbell has stepped forward to offer a choice for Walker County voters.
A native grandmother, Ales is co-owner of a successful business, civic leader, personable, well-informed, honest and watches over 82 students on her Villanow school bus route.
I challenge fellow Walker County voters and taxpayers to vet Ales at writeinales.com.
When you vote: 1) touch “write-in” box for the sole commissioner’s race; 2) type A-L-E-S C-A-M-P-B-E-L-L on the screen keyboard; 3) touch “record write-in.”
Ales Campbell is the “write” choice for Walker County.
