Vote Carmen Salome for Supervisor of Elections

By Staff | Aug 24, 2016

To the editor:

I have known Carmen Salome for several years. As a citizen and taxpayer I feel enormously appreciative she is running for the position of Lee County Supervisor of Elections. Her experience in county government alone qualifies her as a viable candidate. That experience also provided her with an understanding of the workings of our local government and community. She is an excellent listener, smart, honest, solutions and goals oriented. Put a problem in front of Carmen and she works tirelessly towards a solution. Better yet, she doesn’t sit on the solution, she makes it happen. People pay attention to Carmen because when she speaks it is clear she knows what she is talking about. She has a soft spoken and confident demeanor that exudes leadership.

Lee county voters in recent years have had many frustrating, expensive and embarrassing situations occur at the hands of current leadership. My northern friends frequently ask what will go wrong in the next election in Florida. Too often Lee County is too near or at the center of these avoidable problems. On Aug. 30, it’s time to elect Carmen Salome to the position of Lee County Supervisor of Elections.
