I support Mayor Bruce Rose for re-election.

After learning about the Wilson Christmas Parade being renamed, I saw the mayor jump into action and address the situation. He wrote a letter to the editor expressing his views. He proposed keeping our parade about Christmas. I am sure he also worked behind the scenes to resolve this.

This situation was resolved quickly and effectively. He worked on behalf of the many Christians who took offense to the name change.

I will support Mayor Rose.
