I disagree with "MID needs fresh blood" (Aug. 28, Letters) for two reasons.
First, age has absolutely nothing to do with competence or incompetence. If you are going to vote for someone based on their age, then you have definitely missed the mark.
Second, Cecil Hensley has done an outstanding job as a director of the Modesto Irrigation District. He is dedicated, thorough and votes intelligently. MID customers are in good hands with Cecil on the board.
It is better to vote for a candidate because of his platform, not his personal characteristics.
