A letter from a supporter

By John Foster - Friday, October 24, 2008 at 08:46 PM

The Minnick for Congress campaign received this e-mail earlier this week. Republished here with permission from the letter-writer:

Dear Walt,

I am sure you get thousands of emails. I do hope you have a chance to read mine. I watched the debate last night and was very impressed by your performance there.

First, let me give you a little background. I am a registered Republican and generally vote in that direction, although, I feel like I am becoming more and more of an Independent ... 

I am a 43 year old network administrator living in Fruitland Idaho. I have a daughter in college and have all the same issues that any parent with a college student faces. I have watched my 401K which was not that big anyway, shrink to near nothing. I am very concerned about my family’s future …

As I watch the [presidential] debates, I see and hear very immature people that would like to run our country. The poor vocabulary, the snide remarks, etc just show that they are not leadership material.

I did not see that in you. I watched Sali make those remarks to you and you handled them like a leader …

I intend to vote for you because I believe that you have our best interests at heart and I admire your accomplishments in life. People that can accomplish what you have are few and far between. I wish that I were more like you in that respect.

My one concern with any candidate is that I would want them to run government as I would my family, by that I mean, if times are lean, we should cut extravagancies, if we don’t have the money, we go without, stay out of debt and live within our means.

I would like to see someone who would really try to eliminate the wasting of my tax dollars, they were hard earned, I have to make them stretch and I would like to see you do the same. I would like to see less government intervention in our lives because anytime the government implements a program, it costs money for you and I.

I am convinced that my voting for you is the right choice, please don’t let me down. I would like to vote for Ron Paul for the Presidential election as I think he has a lot of qualities that I see in you …

God Speed,
