This past Friday, Laura Curran and Jack Martins were both at an event on transportation. The two of them treated each other with a large amount of respect and Jack Martins was even quoted as saying, “We have the opportunity to have one side win and the other side not to lose.”
This is the way that politics should be. More times than not, there is more that unites us than divides us. Being able to watch the two politicians respect each other and not throw personal insults at each other is great. The two of them did debate on policies, but they never started slinging mud at each other.
I encourage all politicians to handle themselves the way that these two candidates handled themselves. While I disagree with Jack Martins on most of the issues, I think it’s important for us to hear the other sides point of view. I encourage all Martins supporters to listen to Laura Curran. We can’t fix this county by being completely divided. No matter who wins in November, we are all going to have to work together to pull ourselves out of this current mess.
