No griping from 55 percent nonvoters

Living in Winfield for over 27 years it was numbing to see that only 45 percent of its citizens voted on April 9. Maybe it was all the antics and bad publicity seen in the papers daily that caused people to show surprising apathy toward the problems that face Winfield.

The ongoing rhetoric between the Hatfields and McCoys has been plaguing Winfield ever since I can remember. That is why I endorsed Rob Hanlon. He was an independent candidate who could bring some unity to our village. His calm, communicating, and collaborative style would be an asset to our village. He had the skills and knowledge to solve the village's problems.

He believed all points of view should be heard and that trust was needed to mend our village board back to a working relationship and go forward. He would have returned civility to the village board and made Winfield proud. Thank you, Rob, for putting forth such an honest effort to get our town out of such dire straits. So glad I had the pleasure of meeting and campaigning for you.

As far as the other 55 percent of our citizens: Don't want to hear you complaining of our failing streets or higher taxes get involved.
