To the editor:
The primary election is coming up on Aug. 14. I encourage you to vote for Commissioner Ray Judah to be re-elected to the District 3.
He has a proven record of supporting any and all issues that come up that affect Lehigh Acres in the past and now. He supports the purchase of Lehigh Spring and was instrumental in helping our community as a visionary leader for our community's future and in supporting the Lehigh Acres Community Plan, calling for various city centers to be developed to boost economic growth in Lehigh Acres.
He provided stability and maintained service levels and low tax rates during the foreclosure crisis by reducing county operating costs by $94 million. He helped to reduce the county tax millage rate 29 percent in the past 10 years - 7.59 to 5.41 - and reduced residential garbage rates by 14 percent.
He is a strong advocate of helping to bring in companies that have created jobs: Arthres, Algenol, Chico's, LeeSar, Gartner, Neogenomics and Southwest Florida International Airport.
He is known to our community and Lee County. He is a proven commissioner with a long record of respect for the residents of Lehigh Acres and respect for the environment.
See you at the polls. Vote Judah. Thanks!
