As candidates, we all make promises and lay out plans for the city should the voters put their faith in us and vote to elect us to the Florence City Council. In terms of District 3, I have declared my candidacy, and having been a former city councilman, I know that while we have accomplished so much as a city, there is still much work to do.
Several months ago, when the schools were closed, I heard Florence One Schools had a medical advisory team to ensure use of best medical practices. I am a retired pediatrician, and I reached out to the Superintendent: Could I be a part of that team?
I have read over the past few years, with some amusement, Roy Haymond’s conspiracy theories and misrepresentation in his letters to the editor. His most recent letter, however, contains disinformation, which if read as truth, presents a danger to our democratic (small d) institutions. I have voted in every Presidential election since 1960. I have never seen such juvenile responses to an election as those of this president and Congressional Republicans. Their disinformation and blatant lies need to be reputed by facts.
