To the Editor:

Peter Hutchinson's campaign for governor has been an uphill battle. He is the Independence Party candidate who is not a household name. He has no where near the funds the other two major party candidates have amassed so he has to campaign one voter at a time.

But talking to one voter at a time is much to his advantage because he has had the chance to find out what we are most concerned about and offer real solutions to those issues. Health care, the environment, transportation and education are the core issues on which people across this state are searching for leadership.

I encourage each and every one of you to visit Hutchinson's Web site before going to the voting booth. We deserve honest debate, intelligent solutions, and respectful campaigning. A vote for Hutchinson is a way to say, "We deserve better."
