Letters to the Editor – May 1, 2013


Dear Editor,

We have had the privilege of knowing Kent Stasey since shortly after we moved to this community in 2006. Kent has always been a person of high integrity, both personally and professionally.

He is a genuinely kind person who strives to do the right thing, even when that is a difficult undertaking. Kent is an experienced businessman who brings to the table an excellent working knowledge of the needs of utility customers, which is currently a significant opportunity for improvement within the city of Annetta with regards to water systems.

Kent and his wife, Mary Beth, are dedicated Christians who actively seek opportunities to improve this community through their church, their children’s activities, their neighborhood and now through the place 5 position on the Annetta City Council. They are excellent role models within our community, volunteering countless hours at church activities and community improvement projects, as well as looking after neighbors who may need assistance.

Our home is currently outside the town of Annetta, but this election is important to our family, as we are customers of the water system owned by Annetta. We also are impacted with regard to the potential annexation of the Annetta ETJ water customers into the City of Annetta. We support Kent’s position on the improvements in the water system as well as his pro-annexation position for numerous reasons, not the least of which would be the road improvements for everyone on the way to Stuard Elementary, where our children attend.

We encourage you to get to know Kent and Mary Beth Stasey, if you don’t already. We are excited to see Kent stepping up to run for this position not for his own importance, but for improvements in our community. You will find that Kent has a genuine desire to listen to the concerns of residents, to implement positive changes on the city council, and to unify our community by working effectively with others, all while preserving the integrity of our community for generations to come.
