Leaders are supported

TO THE EDITOR: We are writing in support of the Town Of Jay supervisor and councilmen.

Very often you will see letters saying that it is time for a change or that these people do not know what they are doing. However, the current people who are serving our town are some of the most dedicated people that I know.

No, they are not perfect, but they have sacrificed their own personal time to do a job that is very seldom appreciated. This is a thankless job and even when they know there will be times that they will disappoint a personal friend or family member, they are willing to step up and face this challenge of the job.

We appreciate the job that they are doing to serve us as a community, and we will support them in the upcoming elections. Will they be perfect in this job? There is no one that is perfect except God, and we will pray for each of them that God will guide them in the best decision for our town.
