Fellow Republicans’ criticism of Nehring unfair

I am livid! Where is the compassion in the political arena in Snohomish County?

The Republicans in Flathead County, Montana, when I was growing up would never have dreamed of being cruel and mean to the other candidates. Yes, I am livid about the actions of some of this area’s Republicans, and you know who you are.

I have lived in Marysville since 1967.

The Republican candidates who are running against the deserving Nate Nehring have broken the hearts of many of us in this area, and we are scolding all of you for your very rotten, rude, mean behavior toward Nick Nehring who we love, respect and appreciate very much and of course, the same goes for his wonderful family where leadership listens and truly cares!

Nate Nehring deserves everyone’s vote. He is young, capable, intelligent and an all-around patriotic guy. I know him well and I’m very proud of that friendship.

My Daddy would tell you cruel ones, “Think about it!” Yes, that’s for your comments toward Nate Nehring.

I am proudly displaying Nate Nehring’s yard sign front and center in my yard and many citizens use this street to get from here to there. Thanks Nate for bringing your meaningful sign to me.

Best wishes to exemplary Nate Nehring, and yes, Nate’s leadership truly listens and truly cares.
