Candidate thinks for himself

To the editor:

I’m writing in support of Tom Blake’s candidacy for reelection to the South Portland City Council.

Tom has long been a voice of reason on the council. Through his years of service he has represented us well and with dignity, regardless of the issue. We have had in him a council member and mayor who works hard, listens very carefully, considers all sides and treats everybody’s views respectfully. I haven’t always agreed with every stance Tom has taken. Nevertheless, I’ve never felt that he was anything other than considerate and fair to the citizens who appear before the council on either side of any issue.

In an age of partisan politics, this is a quality that our elected officials should aspire to. I believe both that we’re all fortunate Tom Blake decided to run for another term and that he deserves our support on Nov. 5.
