Ferguson breath of fresh air

To the editor:

When I read that Ron Ferguson had announced he will run for Ohio House of Representatives, District 96, it was like a breath of fresh air.

Why? “Good character is not formed in a week or a month. It is created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good character.” I’ve known him for some time, and his honesty and character exemplify this ancient quote from Greek philosopher Heraclitus. Ron Ferguson grew up here in the upper Ohio Valley where character still means something and is respected.

He is a local guy who understands the long-standing problems people face here along the Ohio River. He understands the rapid changes we are experiencing with the gas and oil industry becoming such a big part of our economy.

Ferguson also is a breath of fresh air because he lives the life he was called to live. He is a Christian and lives a moral life in word and deed. Being honest and compassionate means something to him, and he has demonstrated that to me many times. As a former broadcast journalist at WTOV-TV, he proved himself to be a great voice for the valley.

We should all be thankful that such a man of this high character is seeking office to serve all of us. Ferguson comes from a great family that has built a business reputation on being reliable and trustworthy. I am very happy to be supporting him for Ohio state representative — go, Ron.
