Candidate a pro-life Democrat

To the Editor:

A Pro-life Democrat, I value a healthy society: decent jobs, robust business climate, equitable pay, homes workers can afford, care for the earth. I prompted local Democrats to declare: “We respect the conscience of each American and recognize that members of our party have deeply held and sometimes differing positions on issues of personal conscience, such as abortion and the death penalty. We recognize the diversity of views as a source of strength, and we welcome into our ranks all Americans who may hold differing positions on these and other issues.” I will bring such values to the commission.

Editor’s note: Mr. O’Neill is running for District No. 7 of the Leelanau County Board of Commissioners, which includes Kasson and Solon townships.
