We live in a world where all too often people feel the need to try to smear the opposing candidate, or candidate supporters throw mud at the opposite side hoping to help their favored candidate. Pat Pickar has not done that. He is the complete opposite. Speaking with one of his campaign staff, I learned Pat instructed his team that he wanted a positive campaign. Negative attacks on his competitors were not allowed. Pat has been the target of several incorrect smear attempts during his campaign. Even his dad, sister, aunt and uncle have been attacked and yet he has maintained his positive campaign. Thank you Pat for having the integrity to take the high road even when they are swinging at your knees. For those reading this, I have known Pat since high school. Please take the time to get to know him too.
