Letter: Why I support Rivera for mayor

The Eagle-Tribune

---- — To the editor:

I love the City of Lawrence, where I have worked for over 30 years, and as a voter I am excited about her future.

I have been fortunate to have been introduced to Dan Rivera through family and friends and have been greatly impressed by his love for and commitment to the city where he has spent almost his entire life.

Dan is now a candidate for mayor of Lawrence. I am voting for Dan because he has a bold vision to change things for the better and the courage, energy and work ethic to act on his plan.

He believes we need to increase the size of our police and fire departments, improve our schools and commitment to our youth, create economic expansion and develop jobs, and restore pride in our city.

Dan has that right combination of personal and professional qualities to bring people together working for the common good.

Our Bread & Roses City has had a glorious past, and with Dan Rivera our best days are yet to come. Please join me in voting for Daniel Rivera for mayor of Lawrence on Sept. 17.
