Cast your vote for Bob Wheatley

September 1, 2014

I attended the Sussex County Council Fifth District Candidate’s Forum sponsored by the Laurel Library and The Delaware League of Women Voters held at the Laurel Library.

Bob Wheatley stood head and shoulders above the crowded field of aspirants. The candidates did not know the questions in advance, but Bob displayed a remarkable ability to think on his feet and a thorough knowledge of the issues.

His answers were clear, specific, thoughtful and forthright. Most importantly, he didn’t hedge on the tough questions. Also, I believe Bob was the only candidate who didn’t feel obligated to use every second of time allotted to him; he just answered the questions and closed his mouth when he was done.

How refreshing.

Bob Wheatley will be an excellent councilman for District 5. Cast your vote for Bob Wheatley Sept. 9 and Nov. 4.
