Letter to the Editor: Remember Front Royal town charter issue?
For many years I proudly considered myself a Republican. No longer.
I no longer consider myself a Republican. For now on I will vote based upon the issues and character of the candidate. That being said, I will not be voting for Michael Webert, the Republican candidate for House of Delegates.
Several months ago, Del. Webert was tasked by the Front Royal Town Council to present a list of town charter changes to the House of Delegates to be voted on by the House of Delegates. In that list was a request for the change of the town elections from May elections on even-numbered years to November on even-numbered years.
Webert betrayed the trust of his constituents when he placed partisan politics ahead of the needs and wishes Front Royal citizens and their desire to elect their elected officials as they see fit. Webert is not fit nor qualified to hold public office.
Is there a candidate with the Integrity to put aside partisan politics and work for the people wiling tol step forward run for public office? I believe that there is one. After speaking with him for over two hours at my home this past Saturday over a wide range of issues --including what happened to Front Royal in regards to the town charter Issue -- I believe that Colin Harris is that candidate for delegate for the 18th District.
Timothy P. Ratigan, Front Royal
