Best candidate

To the Editor:

My father, “Iron Mike” Lesperance, is the best candidate for Nunda Township highway commissioner because he is a good man. When Hurricane Katrina hit, my father organized a group of men to build a house for a very deserving elderly women who lost her home.

Further, my father and mother have three reputable children (excuse me for saying so). My brother is a hardworking Union 1 laborer; I am in school for aviation maintenance technologies; and my sister is finishing a bachelor’s degree.

Mike has successfully operated Iron Mike’s Excavating for 35 years. He has done everything from dirt work, road construction, road maintenance, landscaping, bidding, payroll and much more.

And one more thing, I can attest to his anti-nepotism campaign promise as I was never allowed to play quarterback when my dad coached me in Crystal Lake Raiders football for two years. But we were undefeated both years!
