I am appalled at the anti-Wally White ad (Herald, Oct. 26) paid for by the La Plata County Republican Party. Maybe if I were planning on marrying Wally White, his child-support payment history and dealings with his former fiancée would be relevant. But Wally White is running for the position of county commissioner, not that of husband, so it is his history of public service that is important.
Wally has been involved in county and community issues for many years, including citizen boards and advisory committees. He represents our county well at the state level, and works hard to ensure that county growth management takes into account the quality of life issues that people in La Plata County care about.
Please look to the issues and the candidates' histories of community involvement, not to the irrelevant personal attacks, and re-elect Wally White. (And Wally, you're a nice guy, but I'm already married - sorry!)
