Letter: Elect Gary Hinzman mayor of Cedar Rapids

Gary Hinzman is running for mayor. That has a pleasant ring to it.

When I hear the word Hinzman, I think of the musical “The Music Man.” “Gary, Indiana,” then floats to my mind and makes me smile.

Today you and I know it’s hard to smile with all the problems everyone is facing on a day-to-day basis. So picking the right person to be our mayor is very important.

As we select a new mayor, we will need someone with a calm voice, leadership abilities and faith in our country.

Be sure and take time to vote for Hinzman to be mayor of Cedar Rapids.
