Supporting Dreikorn for commission

By Staff | Aug 12, 2020

To the editor:

Pine Island has not had an Islander on the Lee County Commission since Henry Stringfellow. Pine Islander Mike Dreikorn is running for that spot against Sanibel Mayor Kevin Ruane. The contrast between the two is just like the contrast between Pine Island and Sanibel City.

Mike is an 8-year Army veteran, Ruane never served. Mike has a doctorate. Mike is in aviation engineering, Ruane is a money lender specializing in franchising. Mike lives in a modest home like most Islanders, and Ruane in a million dollar waterside. Mike has campaigned among you every day, Ruane is not spotted on the campaign trail. Mike has support of the veteran, law enforcement and motorcycling community, Ruane doesn’t ride. Mike actually does local clean water projects, Ruane is a clean water philosopher. Mike is rigorously independent, Ruane is the president of the Florida League of Mayors.

This primary election is the best chance we Islanders have had for many years to have a voice in Lee County. Why vote for the same old Republican group? Decide for yourself: www.votedreikorn.com and www.votekevinruane.com.
