Don Pozzi will help continue Victoria's success

Editor, the Advocate:

Who could replace Judge Pozzi? What person could we count on to lead commissioners court, have a clear picture of their responsibilities and who fully understands how his or her job relates to the continued growth and prosperity of our community?

I have studied these questions carefully, and I have come to the conclusion that the person seeking the position of county judge with these qualifications is Don Pozzi. Our commissioners have worked well with Don Pozzi to help make Victoria a great place to live. They have supported a strong sheriff's office, improved county services, repaired our roads and have worked together providing competitive salaries and benefits for county employees. They have done this ever mindful of their commitment to our taxpayers.

We need to continue the success in Victoria County that is already in progress. I have a hard time considering someone else for such an important position, whose "vision" is simply to slash the budget, with no specifics about what services, positions or compensation they propose to cut.

Victoria is not Washington, DC. Local decisions directly impact our own citizens' and taxpayers' quality of life. We need strong leaders like Don Pozzi as county judge.
