Pat is my choice

on Tuesday, 14 June 2016. Posted in Letters to the Editor, Opinions

Well, we all have to go vote again in a runoff election for Florence City Council District #2 on Tuesday, June 21. My candidate in the first voting cycle was Pat Gibson-Hye Moore and my candidate in the runoff election will remain the same. I know she’s the best choice to represent us. Why?

1. Pat Gibson-Hye Moore went before city council and asked for wheelchair charging stations in our city parks so that our disabled Florence citizens who depend on their motorized wheelchairs can enjoy our city parks without fear of low battery life. Charging stations are now available.

2. She went before city council to ask that the city help provide warming stations to our homeless population in designated locations when the temperature falls below 20 degrees during the cold nights of winter. Again, they listened and they helped.

3. While driving, Pat Gibson-Hye Moore saw two cars fall into a sink hole caused by an underground water leakage. She stayed with the drivers until the police, public works and tow truck arrived and followed up with the car owners, city manager and mayor the next day to make sure that everything had been cleared and all repairs had been made.

4. Last Christmas, Pat Gibson-Hye Moore cooked a huge dinner for anyone who didn’t have a place to eat.” Pat Gibson-Hye Moore is a people person – all people.  Pat loves everyone. Someone said to her once that ‘over there isn’t your neighborhood, what difference does it make to you.?’

She politely responded, “It matters because Florence is my neighborhood, all of it.”  I urge you to vote for Pat Gibson-Hye Moore in the runoff election on June 21. She has the compassion, dedication, integrity and leadership that Florence so desperately needs. Willie M. Peguese, Florence
