Dear Editor:


I am writing to voice my support of Randy Keith, Republican candidate for the office of 101st State Representative.  Randy has served on the Piatt County Board for the last 8 years, and I have had the privilege of working with him for the last 3 years. During that time Randy has held the position of Chairman of the Piatt County Board. I have been most impressed by Randy’s integrity and commitment. 


When faced with problems large and small, I cannot count the times I have heard him weigh what is “best for the folks”, and remind those in attendance of that test. Randy’s real-world experiences as a factory worker, business owner, parent, grandparent, veteran and public servant give him the ability to look at multiple sides of an issue, empathize with those involved, and come to a fair, balanced conclusion. 


I have watched Randy handle difficult, contentious situations with kindness and aplomb on numerous occasions. Randy possesses an uncanny ability to bring people of different groups, opinions and goals together to accomplish a task. We need selfless leadership with integrity in Springfield if our state is to weather these difficult times.


Randy Keith embodies the qualities of the leadership we need. His character and integrity will not fail the people of the 101st. Please join me in supporting Randy Keith for the 101st in the March 20 primary.
