Reader endorses incumbent Sheplee


I am writing this letter of endorsement for Bethany Beach Town Council incumbent Patrick Sheplee. I have known Patrick for over 55 years, and I believe I have a unique perspective on his credentials.

In addition to his many professional accomplishments, I have witnessed firsthand his years of dedication to business, civic and social organizations. His many years of service has formed his strong qualities of researching and understanding complex issues, listening and respecting all viewpoints and sound judgment in his decision-making.

Patrick has developed strong roots in Bethany Beach and cares deeply about the community. He has been active in many volunteer events, as well as utilizing his CPA skills for the years he was on the Audit Committee. His participation and leadership in so many activities and organizations gives him a unique understanding of the town and sensitivity to all residents.

Patrick and I have had numerous discussions about issues facing Bethany Beach, and I am constantly impressed with his fair and balanced views on the issues facing the present and future of Bethany Beach. I know that he is proud of his work during his first term and is excited to continue his contributions to the town he loves.

Patrick has worked hard for all the residents of Bethany Beach and is respected by fellow council members, as well as the community at large.

I believe he deserves your vote so on Sept. 7. Please cast your ballot for Patrick Sheplee.
