Veach is the right guy for the job
To the editor:
Yes, Bill is a “great guy” and an “advocate for all things environmental,” as Mr. Rood writes in his letter. The majority of us believe water quality is the #1 issue here in Southwest Florida, and we absolutely need to pay attention to all things environmental that affect our quality of life. Might it be better to have well-rounded awareness and advocacy, than hide one’s head in the sands of self interest?
Those who know Bill well realize he is most capable of being “fair and balanced” in his decision-making. It is refreshing to have a person with a successful business background in industrial technology and entrepreneurship with a healthy dose of curiosity — and without a hidden agenda –running for Town Council. He wants what is best to protect our island and way of life. This does not mean he wants street lights that protect turtles over people. Yes, he does believe in plastic bans — whether straws or bags — as we who wish to protect the water and its creatures do. Bill is an even-keeled guy with a sense of humor and would be an asset to T C. Please thoughtfully consider him for your vote.
