With the election approaching, we all seek information and opinions for whom we should vote. In the past we have had good men to serve as sheriff of Wood County, but moving into this century our needs have changed. As a county commissioner, I get to see close up what our elected officials do and stand for. In this changing world we need leaders with future vision and the energy to move us into a future that benefits our community. When we have such leaders, we must give them time to achieve their missions.
