Carl Conley Is The Right Call

I have never felt the need to write a letter of opinion before, but I wanted to urge voters to consider giving a vote to Carl Conley Jr. for county commissioner. I have been voting for a lot of years and was always told you should vote for the person...not the party. I once heard a man say of a candidate for school board many years back that he knew she would make a great school board member, as she was a former teacher that he had lots of respect for. However, he “couldn’t” vote for her because she was running from a different party from his chosen party.

We are fortunate to have many outstanding candidates for county commissioner this election. In urging you to vote for Carl Conley Jr. I’m not telling you to vote against anyone.

I have known Carl for many years. He served his country as a Marine. He is always willing and available to help out anyone in need. He cares about our young people. Carl will look at the issue from all sides, all viewpoints, and then make the decision that is in the best interest of everyone.

This group of commissioners will have many challenging decisions to make that will greatly impact the future of Transylvania County. I know that Carl will not go in with any preconceived ideas, but will give everyone a voice. It won’t matter if you are a Democrat or Republican, you will be listened to, and your opinion taken into consideration.

I have watched Carl on many occasions as he officiated high school sports. I have heard people see him coming into the gym or onto the football field, and comment “We have the good official tonight.” Carl will listen to those who are yelling for the call to go their way, he will listen to the coaches arguing for the call to go their way, and then Carl will make the right call. The call that is based on the rules of the game, and ultimately the call that is best for everyone involved. No, not everyone will always agree with him in that moment, but if they really look at all the facts, they will realize that he made the right call.

That’s why I say that Carl Conley Jr. is the right call for county commissioner. He will do the research on the issues. He will talk with those who need to be heard. He will look at what is best for everyone and he will make the right call. As you vote, please consider giving Carl your vote.
