It May Seem Corny, But Sullivan's Good

Why do I support Rod Sullivan?

But you can learn all of that from his Web site,

The most important reason why I support Sullivan is because of his basic decency as a human being.

It may sound corny, but it's true. Sullivan's every action comes from the core of his being: his sensitivity to others, his sincerity, his commitment to the public's best interests, his intelligence and curiosity, his vision, his ability to really listen to others, his religious and family values.

I've known presidents, and I've known school board members. And I can tell you, Sullivan is, in my book, one of the most decent, the most worthy, public officials I've ever known of the whole lot.

He may disappoint me someday, but he never has so far and I'm willing to bet it's very unlikely he ever will.
