I recently attended a meeting at Barker Mill Arms where Donald Bernard, a candidate for the state Senate, was the speaker, not that many of my fellow residents attended. They should have.
Mr. Bernard was extremely impressive. As a former state representative and senator, he has a proven record. His experience would be a valuable asset to all of us.
He spoke of his agenda, if elected, that will address the fragile senior citizen situation, the broken promises to our veterans, the need to maintain high scholastic standards for our children and the lowering of the high tax burden on all of us. A very ambitious undertaking.
If anyone can accomplish all that, I believe Mr. Bernard could do it.
