Letter to the Editor:
I have always been one to vote for person, not party. And even in these turbulent political times, fraught with disdain and divisiveness, I am throwing my support behind the Republican candidate for State Senator, John Flores.
In our time together on the Barnstable Town Council I have found that John Flores is a thoughtful, caring and solution minded individual who weighs the risk and benefit of each decision thoroughly. He is 100% committed to measurable outcomes and fully understands compromise. I find him reasonable, experienced, and kind.
I know that now (more than ever) there is a tendency on the part of all of us to cast a knee jerk vote in favor of one party or another. I would ask that Independents and Democrats alike make a decision based not on party affiliation, but on acumen, experience and commitment to fiscal responsibility.
Barnstable Town Councilor, Precinct 13
