To the Editor,

Some people that read this will know me, others may not. For those who don’t know me, I own my own very small business and I’m the one and only employee. I believe that I am a pretty good judge of character and also try to give everyone the benefit of the doubt. Having said all of that; by putting his sign on my truck is just how strong of a candidate I think John Rodgers is. I ASKED JOHN FOR THE SIGNS HE DID NOT HAVE TO ASK ME. John is a very smart man (Rice graduate) with a servant's heart (career Firefighter). He’s not “just a firefighter” he’s a firefighter here in his HOMETOWN caring, serving, and protecting the people he sees even on his days off. So in my mind he really never gets a day off, he’s “wired” like that. To the people who think firefighters just “go with the flow” or “take the easy way out;” I’m sorry but that’s just not in a firefighters DNA. Popular or not, John will make the right decision with the info he has 100% of the time. That’s the kind of person we need on this Board. So we need to let a man with a vested interest in our community with no hidden agenda do what he does best. Serve!!!

Thanks, Jeff Buchanan
