LETTER: Amunds has integrity, 'extremely conservative' record, wife says

Published: Monday, August 18, 2014 at 11:57 AM.

Dear editor,

  As this election draws to a close, I wanted to pass along my thoughts. 

First of all, this campaign has been hard on our family. It is difficult when your husband, father, uncle, brother or son is being unfairly attacked in the ways Don Amunds has been attacked. As a family, we are leaning on each other and know that God has a plan for our lives. 

Second are this campaign's issues. Don has never raised taxes and he vows that he never will. He is extremely conservative, even voted against the new courthouse in Fort Walton and has insisted on cost-cutting measures in the Crestview Courthouse's renovation. Don feels there are ways to address storm water and infrastructure issues without raising your property taxes. Having good jobs in Okaloosa County is especially important since we have young adult sons that we hope settle down here.

The final thing I want to address is Don’s integrity. According to the dictionary, integrity is the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles.

Integrity is also defined as wholeness or sameness all the way through. 

With Don, I can say, without reservation, that he is a man of integrity all the way through. Don has no hidden agendas. He has only one agenda: to keep Okaloosa County financially healthy while providing for everyone’s needs.
