My entire voting life, I have been proud of the many times I’ve cast my ballot in support of candidates from both major parties. I believe people should look at the candidates first, not the party. No one party has a monopoly on good ideas. Especially in local elections, I look for candidates that have an open mind, a willingness to listen and the desire to work across party lines to get things done for their constituents.
In our local election, it’s more than clear that only one candidate fits that mold. Through his professional and public service experience, Bob Hebert has proven an ability to work with others to get things done. When his challenger proudly proclaimed “I have never voted Republican” on a recent TV interview, further explaining that she cannot support anyone from the Republican party, it became clear that she will not represent all of us.
