Leiner supporter: ‘It’s time for change’

To the Editor:

I have known Bill Leiner Jr. all my life. As children, we played together. As teenagers, we raised a little hell together. And, as adults, we worked at Bethlehem Steel together.

For as long as I can remember, Bill has always had a passion for politics. More importantly, he has always had a compassion for the little guy — the working man. And, as the son of a 95-year-old Pearl Harbor survivor, I know Bill would never do anything to dishonor his father.

Right now, we have a proven pathological liar in the Oval Office, a charlatan who blatantly lies and exaggerates on a daily basis. Wouldn’t it make sense to elect a congressman who’s a no-nonsense, no-bull, straight-shooting, former steelworker and who has the guts to stand up to the pretender in the White House?

My friends, it’s time for change. I’m an independent. And I’m voting for Bill Leiner.
