Letter to the editor – In support of Bret Richards

To the editor:

The Republican primary for the Fourth Congressional District is coming up fast. We are fortunate to have several good candidates running but one stands head-and-shoulders above the rest.

I wish everyone in the Fourth District could meet Bret Richards personally. If they did, he would win by a landslide.

When I met Bret for the first time, I expected him to talk about himself and then ask for my vote, endorsement, volunteer help or personal check. He didn’t. He asked about me, my family, my small business and life in Jefferson. He cares about others, deeply and genuinely. Bret Richards will represent us as a citizen-lawmaker and a servant leader who gets things done.

Congressman Richards will vote the conservative way, on life and the Second Amendment and just as importantly, he’ll treat everyone with respect. He has common sense and good judgment, a background in the military, business and health care. Bret Richards is “Iowa Nice,” exactly the kind of person you’d like to have for your next-door neighbor.

Something that distinguishes Bret from the other Republican candidates for Congress is that he believes in term limits, and practices what he preaches. When he goes to Congress, he’ll serve for five terms, 10 years, and not a day longer. He’s not looking for a new career. He’s looking to make a difference while he’s in Congress and then leave.

Bret Richards is a man of his word, a deep-down good person whose handshake means everything. I want to be represented by just such a person. I expect you do, too. Vote for Bret Richards for 4th Congressional District by absentee ballot or on June 2nd at the polls in the Republican primary.

Sean Sebourn, Jefferson, Iowa
