As lifelong friends of the Vito Chiesa family, we wholeheartedly recommend him for District 2 supervisor.
Vito exemplifies all the attributes to represent us all: Energetic, fair, honest and willing to reach out and listen to all his constituents.
This race is developing into a contest of the "political machine" (Weidman's supporters) against the "economic engine" (Chiesa's supporters).
We feel that it is imperative that this district has a self-employed business person to represent us. Only a person who deals with payroll, sales and property taxes and the many fees for county services understands how the endless rules and regulations that business owners have to comply with affects all of us. It's important for the economic well-being of our county.
If you read The Bee's editorial on May 11, Vito's accomplishments and abilities were described very well. The only negative seems to be that he used "poor judgment" in associating with a constituent that the editors judged as questionable. Since when has The Bee become a judge and jury?
We take exception to this criticism and are proud that Vito Chiesa reaches out to all people.
