Ross W. Lee: Don’t believe all you hear

May 22, 2014 

When a registered Republican was asked why her yard is sporting a Scott Calkins sign, the reason proffered was that someone very close to the Calkins campaign told her that Terry Withrow “is a rich farmer with his own jet.” Terry Withrow is a certified public accountant, married father of four, who is involved in agriculture – no jet. He works his tail off for his family, his clients and his constituents. Beyond that, Terry is a nice, honest and smart gentleman who cares about his community and serves it well. While there’s nothing wrong with owning your own jet, no one should think less of Terry Withrow because of something that is untrue.
