To the editor:
We (Phil Buchanan and Noel Andress) are active in representing Pine Island on various Lee County boards and committees. We are knowledgeable with the 3 candidates running for District 4 Board of County Commissioners. Our objective is to pick the candidate mostly likely to support Pine Island efforts to keep our Land Use Plan in place. We are pleased to recommend Sawyer Smith as that candidate.
Recent court cases decided against the Pine Island Plan require strong county leadership to ensure our Plan does not get reversed. We would appreciate your support and vote for this lifelong resident of Lee County who has a deep understanding of the issues and will provide strong leadership for our future.
