CEDAR FALLS -- This is an open letter to all residents in Cedar Falls, Ward 5, Precinct 3 (who voted at the Orchard Hill Church this year.). For all our health, I did not knock at your door this general election year. I want you to know how much I miss that opportunity. I started knocking doors in 1964, and knocked other areas in southeast Cedar Falls, but this current precinct has been the best.
I have always presented the “ticket” from top to bottom, and had some literature for local elective offices. I have always been ready to listen to your ideas and positions. I have offered materials for voter registration and for voting by mail to everyone.
At many doors I heard, “Well I’m a Republican.” I always responded that I hoped they were like the best Republicans Iowa ever had. Our former Gov. Bob Ray was very wise and had a great heart. Today I would have mentioned Secretary of State Paul Pate for working to help all Iowans cast their votes during this pandemic.
In 2022 there will be new precinct lines, and I will be 88. So thank you, goodbye, and good government.
