TO THE EDITOR:
Four years ago, I supported Margaret Brown for Orange County commissioner, and I support her again today. She has been an excellent commissioner. She should be re-elected not only because of her experience, achievements and long service to the people of Orange County, but also because of her even-handed and attentive disposition.
Over the more than 30 years that I have known Margaret, she has been deeply involved in community affairs, always exhibiting a sensitive attitude toward others. That is how she has conducted herself as an elected commissioner. She understands and respects the contributions that volunteer community agencies make to the people of Orange County. Margaret herself is the consummate volunteer, with lengthy service on many town and county boards and organizations. She believes strongly in giving to the community.
Her caring disposition toward people and issues, along with her infections optimism, maker her an ideal commissioner. Margaret Brown has achieved many of the environmental, social and housing goals that she established when she last ran for election. I have no doubt that she will be as dedicated, resourceful and responsible in her second term as she has been in the past.
