To the editor:
There is only one person running for State Representative that has the business experience, record of results and community involvement that is necessary to represent us in Tallahassee.
Chris Berardi is that person. He has grown a small company from a few dozen employees to over 150 and has also managed a Fortune 100 corporation. As a councilmember he reduced the city's budget for the first time in 18 years and blocked several fee increases. Berardi is a Church Deacon, Eagle Scout and community volunteer. He has served on over a dozen civic and charitable boards during the last decade, right here in our community.
Berardi has clearly explained what he plans to do for Cape Coral in detail. He has spent his time discussing the real issues facing our community. Berardi is a "Consistent Conservative" that has offered real solutions for getting people back to work, lowering insurance rates and improving our schools. Chris is campaigning on his record, his community involvement and his experience in business.
I am sure we will see a barrage of ads from candidates in many races between now and Aug. 14. In today's information age it is easy for us to research the candidates ourselves. A simple google search of a candidate's name will be more telling than any ad.
It is imperative that we to look beyond the rhetoric; as Ronald Reagan once said, "Trust but Verify"! Search for candidates that have a record of success! In the race for State House District 77, that person is Chris Berardi.
