To the Editor:

I am the past chairman of the Nunda GOP and a Republican precinct committeeman.

I highly recommend Andy Zinke for sheriff and Mary McClellan for county clerk. I personally know both of these fine people, and they are qualified for the positions they seek.

Bill Prim supported the Democrat candidate for sheriff, Mike Mahon, in 2010. Now he proclaims to be a Republican and reformer. We should be paying attention to the safety of our citizens instead of politics.

Nick Provenzano is a career politician. This should send up red flags to anyone concerned with clean government and honest elections. A man that partisan and biased simply cannot be trusted to supervise honest elections.

Provenzano, the self-proclaimed watchdog, voted “yes” to spend $82,000 a year of taxpayer money on a lobbyist in Washington, where his boss, Randy Hultgren, is a U.S. Representative.
