Vote for someone who cares about C.R.

Jim Houser is running for Linn County supervisor. I am sure everyone remembers the flood of 2008. It devastated this town. Some lost their houses, cars and almost all they had. It took a lot of sweat and tears and years to rebuild.

The Board of Supervisors offices were moved to Westdale Mall. According to the news and The Gazette, Houser raised quite a fuss. He had to drive 4 1/2 miles farther to go to work and said he should get paid mileage because of it.

How selfish of him. Do we want someone like him in office who cared only for himself when this town was in trouble? When people lost everything they had, even their jobs because of the flood, he complained about driving 4 1/2 miles extra.

Vote in someone who cares about this town and the people in it.
