LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: No-smoking ban should include all workplaces


Dan Stalling, Willow Park City Council member, Place 4

Vick backed for county treasurer

Dear Editor,

My name is Emily Pope. I worked my way through high school and college at Vick’s Chevron Food Mart. Charley and Dedra Vick were my bosses.

As an employer, Dedra was always prompt and flexible in scheduling the work hours for us so that we were able to work when we needed to. She was always on top of figuring the payroll as well as her many other tasks. Her ability to manage all the day-to-day tasks, listen to her employees’ needs and still build amazing relationships with customers and citizens of the community shows how dedicated, loyal and responsible she is.

Her passion for the community, and good customer service is evident because she made so many life long friends in the process of being a business owner. Furthermore, her ability to pass along to me and the other young adults these values and work ethics was priceless.

Dedra is a hard worker, bookkeeper, teacher, mentor, and faithful woman. In my opinion, her years of experience with payroll and bookkeeping, as well as her love for the people of Parker County, make her the obvious choice for the job of Parker County treasurer.

Thank you,

Emily Pope, Weatherford

Dear Editor,

I have known Bernard Suchocki, his wife, Connie, and their two children for more than 20 years. I am writing this letter to show my support for Bernard Suchocki for Justice of the Peace.

Bernard and Connie have been married for 46 years and have raised two responsible children, Bernard “Chip” Jr., a firefighter, and Amy, who is employed by a defense contractor.
