LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Posted March 1, 2018
During a state election time in Illinois when we are seeing a mass exodus of Legislators in our Illinois General Assembly and I see a small town local man who has the sincere passion to make our state a better place and to “put Illinois back to work,” I can’t help but think about the chorus line in Tim McGraw’s country music hit, “Humble and Kind;
“Hold the door, say please, say thank you
Don't steal, don't cheat, and don't lie
I know you got mountains to climb but
Always stay humble and kind
When those dreams you're dreamin' come to you
When the work you put in is realized
Let yourself feel the pride but
Always stay humble and kind”
……..then I think of Monticello’s Randy Keith.
Randy is a good ole small town country boy who retired after working nearly 40 years at Kraft Foods in Champaign. Randy is a true family man, a loving husband, father and grandfather and he LOVES to fish. Randy has sincerely served Piatt County in leadership since 2014, as the Piatt County Board Chairman.
And I feel Randy Keith has truly displayed the real meaning of “serving the people” of Piatt County through his leadership.
Especially now, when all we seem to hear or read about in “politics” in America is corruption, two words jump out at me that we desperately need in the political arena, and they are “service” and ‘integrity”.
And when I think of Randy Keith as State Representative of the 101st District in the State of Illinois, I think of “service & integrity”, while at the same time being very “humble & kind”.
I am voting for Randy Keith and I encourage you to do the same.
