Islander won't vote for Putnam

June 13, 2018
Pine Island Eagle

To the editor:

There is no way in the world I could vote for Adam Putnam. Anyone that was around when the canker scare hit our area should remember that the Department of Agriculture took our fruit trees whether they were infected or not. Then they had the audacity to give us gift cards for Walmart that could only be used in the nursery. Well gee whiz, they did not carry fruit trees. We had a Myers Lemon and Calamondin tree.

Since the holidays were coming, we thought we'd get our Christmas tree and were told they no longer carried Christmas trees. Now all these years later, court cases done and Putnam has placed a hold on the payments to those affected.

Even though Putnam is the only one talking about getting kids into trade schools and learning other skills (which is a darn good idea), his track record is not good. So what would make me think he would follow through with his ideas? Therefore I can not vote for Adam Putnam.
