Secondhand smoke kills smokers and nonsmokers alike. I should not be at a higher risk for health problems because I go to restaurants or other workplaces that allow smoking. The harmful effects of secondhand smoke should be eliminated by simply requiring smoke-free workplaces in the City of Weatherford.
I encourage the City Council to strengthen the proposed ordinance and not exempt any businesses the ordinance. The science is clear, there is no safe alternative other than a complete smoke-free ordinance that covers all public workplaces.

Supports Suchocki for Precinct 4 JP
Bernard Suchocki is running for Justice of the Peace Precinct 4 in the March 4 election. As a friend and neighbor for 17 years, I have seen his commitment in giving back to his community.
Bernard is currently finishing out his term on our Willow Park City Council where he has volunteered countless hours in studying the issues and trying to better our community. As an experienced trial lawyer, Bernard has been able to bring his knowledge of law to the city council to help resolve numerous contract issues and is a strong advocate of fiscal responsibility.
Through the past many years, he has also been involved in other areas of public service as a member of the Board of Directors of the Fire Department and as a commissioner of the Planning and Zoning Committee.
For more than 20 years, Bernard has been giving educational presentations to our local students about space explorations and his experience with NASA as a member of the Apollo 13 Mission Operations Team.
I strongly believe Bernard Suchocki will work as hard as Precinct 4 Justice of the Peace as he has as a member of the Willow Park City Council. Bernard stands behind the people he is serving and goes above and beyond his duties required. I strongly encourage you to support Bernard Suchocki by voting for him on the March 4th election and early voting that runs from Feb. 18-28.
