Positive Campaigns A Refreshing Change

Wednesday, Sep. 29, 2010

It's hard to be cynical about political campaigns when you hear about the candidates for mayor in Myrtle Creek, Oregon.

Both men who are runnning have nothing but praise for the opponent.

Dan Jocoy and Jeff Messner have agreed to "wage a friendly campaign that emphasizes their individual strengths rather than focusing on the other guy."

Their political platforms are similar: both candidates want to give back to the community, bring new jobs, and make sure their small town is well represented at the county and state levels.

The voters can't go wrong in this race. Each man has been named the town's "Man of the Year"  and believe communication and personal integrity are essential ingredients for public officials.

I'd vote for that.
