Editor’s note

A few minutes ago we received three letters to the editor which were clearly written in opposition to Tommy Hester’s candidacy for the Vance County Board of Commissioner’s District 7 seat. Of the three letters, we will run two today and one tomorrow.

We invite the Hester campaign or those in support of Hester to submit letters of response if they so desire. We will run those letters as soon as we receive them; however, we will not run them on election day itself.
