My vote for Georgia state representative of District 117 will go to former Columbia County commissioner Lee Anderson.
Anderson has strong roots in this area. And he should; his family has been farming here forever.
Three pluses especially come to mind when I consider the longtime service Anderson has provided for his fellow Columbia Countians: He is down to earth, he is accessible, and he will listen.
To replace Anderson as county commissioner, my vote goes to former Harlem mayor Scott Dean. Dean has a good attitude and has served Harlem well.
I just hope he realizes that not all of us who have a Harlem or Grovetown address actually live within the city limits.
Simply put, town folk are great as long as they let country folk be country folk. I live in the Pumpkin Center community; please, no city ordinances out this way.
Finally, for U.S. congressman from the 10th District, I wholeheartedly support the re-election of Paul Broun. I cannot overstate how pleased I have been with the service and representation that Broun has provided to the people of this district.
It has been a pleasure to watch Broun be influenced by the Bible and the United States Constitution, rather than by the media and big money. Broun has the faith and courage to stray from the political pack when the pack is running in the wrong, rotten direction.
I have voted for Barry Fleming in the past and have not been disappointed. Still, I wish Fleming was campaigning for Broun's re-election rather than running against him.
