Letter to the editor
To the EDN:
I want to thank everyone who has supported me in my position as your County Auditor. It has been my pleasure to serve the citizens of Emmet County as your County Auditor for the past 24 years. I have enjoyed all the people I have met and worked with over the years. I especially want to thank the election officials who are willing to step up to the plate and serve a very long day and make it possible to have very well run polling places. I want to take this opportunity to publicly thank all of them who will be working on November 4 and all those who have worked in the past. They’re great people and I will miss working with them.
As I am retiring from this position many people have asked me which Auditor candidate I support. I am keeping a neutral position and have not endorsed either candidate. I have answered questions from both candidates as best I can and I will continue to do so. There are two good candidates for the voter’s choice and I wish them both the best of luck. I will be available after Jan. 1 to help as best I can with the transition of the office to the new Auditor.
I encourage everyone to vote their choices on Nov. 4.
