Robert Smullen, I am proud of you

Robert Smullen is as honest as the day is long. He may have made some mistakes but as I read about the events, it seemed to me as the mistakes are honest mistakes and that Mr. Smullen tries to correct his mistakes. They don’t seem to be made to be mean or to be dishonest.

I have known Robert Smullen his whole life; also know his whole family. They are all hard working honest people.

Robert is a hard worker. He graduated from the Citadel and enlisted in the Marines. He served in the Marines 24 years. He has had tours overseas and did all he could to help people who needed help. Now he knows he can help the people who need help in the area he grew up in.

John F. Kennedy once said,” Ask not what your country can do for you.” “Ask what you can do for your country.” I think Robert thinks along those lines also. All of us have good days and bad days but we must think along the lines of our Heavenly Father — “Love thy neighbor.” “Help thy neighbor.” I’m not saying we can over come all evil. But I notice if I change my attitude when talking to people who think differently from me, they seem to change their attitude towards me a little. Let’s vote for Robert Smullen and back him wherever we can. Let’s stop finding fault and look for the good in people. Let’s leave our world a better world for our children and our grandchildren to live in.

Thank you for your editorial, Ms. Maiden of Gloversville, and for your editorial Mr. Betz of Fort Johnson.

Keep up your great work my nephew, Robert Smullen. I’m proud of you.
