To the Editor:
I would like to ask other District 8 voters to join me in supporting Angeleque McNutt for County Commissioner.
While I certainly don’t want to discredit the other candidates who are running for this seat, and I appreciate their willingness to be involved in our county operations, I do feel that Angeleque has handled herself in a professional, informed, and non-confrontational manner since she was appointed in August 2015, and has proven herself to be a quick study on the issues affecting Anderson County, and in particular District 8.
In addition to her sworn duties as our District 8 representative, she has also demonstrated her desire for a deeper level of involvement through her participation in several committees within county government, as well as her general involvement in many community events/activities throughout Anderson County.
But more importantly, she has proven that she will reach out to her constituents for advice and/or opinions on important county matters that affect our quality-of-life and our pocket books.
Angeleque has put forth the effort that the citizens of District 8 should expect of their county leaders and deserves the opportunity to complete this unexpired term. She is not a politician—she is an involved citizen; a small business owner; a mother and grandmother; and a native of Anderson County with a sincere desire to serve her community. I have already cast my vote for Angeleque. I hope you will join me.
