Letter: On Politics

Listen to this post

Dear Editor:

A thought on politics……after celebrating our nation’s independence.

Running for an office and holding an office are two very different things.

Holding an office requires honor, integrity, and tempering every act with wisdom.

Running for an office requires none of those things.

Winning an election is not what carries an individual through their term.

Toby Leavitt
