PARKSVILLE ELECTION: you can be sure of letter writer’s identity

'I'm also pleased to see that (Paul) Reitsma loves himself and has forgiven himself for his past transgressions'

With editor John Harding’s policy of verifying letter writers, we can at least be reassured of authenticity of recent letter writer George Gudbranson’s plug for Paul Reitsma and his support for the curling club (The NEWS, Nov. 4).

I’m also pleased to see that Reitsma loves himself and has forgiven himself for his past transgressions as he outlined in his recent campaign ad.

Civic elections have the most direct impact on our daily lives, so with that in mind I urge everyone to get out and vote for those you feel can provide the innovative thinking and commitment to move us forward. As Reitsma so appropriately points out, vote for who you like, but vote.
