Dear Editor,

Politics are scary. Usually when a person thinks of a politician, they think of a powerful, wealthy man in a suit who is prone to lies and deceit to increase voting numbers. Rare is a time when you encounter a politician who genuinely cares for the people and the best interest of the community over politics and power. I believe we have found that in Charlie Daniels.

Charlie Daniels is a man of the Ohio Valley and FOR the Ohio Valley. Native to Belmont County, Charlie Daniels is a military veteran born from a working class family, filled with a long history of coal miners. He understands the importance of the middle class, and in this area, we need a representative who does. We live in hard times. Jobs are being threatened, money is being taken from Education and our taxes are being raised. We need a representative that will work to strengthen the middle class, not bankrupt it. We need a representative that works to bring new industries and well-paying jobs. Charlie Daniels understands the issues that we deal with every single day. Charlie Daniels will be an amazing representative to voice our best interests in Columbus.

Thank you.
