I have served on community boards with both candidates for House District 85, Democrat Jeff McCabe and Republican Donald Skillings.

This election has been a difficult choice for me since both are family men, sportsmen and active members of our community.

Last election, I supported McCabe over the Republican candidate because of my family values; this year, Skillings has my family values and fiscal matters covered.

Skillings is the type of person of character that I would trust to raise my kids, and Skillings would certainly be the man to count my money over McCabe, the balance would be real. Skillings wouldn’t try to replace a good parking lot and pass the debt onto my kids.

As a 20-year board member, successful businessman and job creator, Skillings is much wiser with money. Our government is broken, and McCabe isn’t helping to fix it. My vote is for Skillings.
