Letters to the Editor – May 1, 2013


Kent’s beliefs have been demonstrated throughout his campaign as evidenced by the fact that he has stated his positions on key issues from the beginning, has not wavered on these positions, has stayed on topic, and has never engaged in negative campaigning. Kent can be trusted to do the right things for the right reasons for our community.


J.D. and Karen Davis, Aledo

Writer backs Stasey for Annetta City Council

Dear Editor,

I’ve been watching the City Council race going on in Annetta and have been interested in the race for City Council Place 5.

Kent Stasey, a family man and community volunteer, has stepped up to lend his experience to the town, running against a guy who lists as his main qualifications for the job his “experience in the political realm in Parker County and at the state level” (Community News, April 26).

I don’t think Annetta needs a politician – Annetta needs a guy with “on the ground, practical experience” and Kent Stasey is that guy. He’s worked in the utility business for more than 20 years, he’s a customer of the Deer Creek water system, he’s closely involved in his children’s activities at Aledo ISD and has held leadership positions in his church there. He is a good family man who is focused on Annetta – not on the next political job or appointment coming down the line.

I hope others are watching this race as closely as I am and will join me in voting for a community member who wants to SERVE the people – not win an election. Vote for Kent Stasey, Annetta City Council, Place 5.

BJ Smyers, Annetta

2013 Annetta election politics

Dear Editor,

It’s sad to see a campaign letter mailed to Annetta residents called “The Real Truth” has resorted to Obama-style politics. There’s NO registered voter in Annetta or, for that matter, Texas by the name Alexandra Hayward. Why wasn’t there a return address? Why was it mailed from Dallas?
