MESSAGE FROM THE SUPERVISOR
"I believe in America. I believe it became great because of its faith in God, its hope for independence, and its love of freedom. I am grateful for America’s glorious past; I am awed by its unbelievable present; I am confident of its limitless future. I am not ashamed to take my hat off and stand at attention when Old Glory passes by. I do not apologize for the lump in my throat when I repeat the Pledge of Allegiance. I am not embarrassed by the tears in my eyes when I hear the Star Spangled Banner.
Like millions of Americans, I want a free choice, not a free handout. I prefer an opportunity to prove my abilities on the job rather than a license to demonstrate my frustrations in the street. I am an old-fashioned American with a newfound determination to do my part to make democracy work."
Even though I am not the original author of the above message, it certainly describes the way I feel about America. I am proud to serve as the Supervisor of Elections for Highlands County, Florida and I strongly encourage you to register and exercise your right to vote.
I certainly hope that the information provided on our website will be of help to you. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact my office at 863-402-6655 or e-mail your questions.
