Sumner a man of his word; committed to citizens

I would like to start by saying how proud I am of Bill Sumner. He ran an honest campaign with no deceit or underhandedness.

I am biased because he is my dad. I can only hope for the citizens of City Council District 4 that your new council person will be willing to give up family obligations for the city of Lancaster. My dad always responded to the calls of District 4 citizens because when he became a city councilman he made a commitment to you. He is a man of his word, no matter what was going on.

I have told him that all things happen for a reason and I believe that reason is so I can have my dad back. My children can have their papa back and most importantly, my mom can have her husband back 100 percent. He will not have to tell us that he cannot do something or not be with us for family things because he had some type of obligation to the city.

My only hope for the citizens of District 4 and the city of Lancaster is that your new councilperson will have the same commitment to the city that my dad has had.
