This letter is in response to your article “Thornton declares for mayor’s race.” Great doesn’t even begin to express how I feel about this article. I am really happy to hear that Lisa Thornton has decided to run for mayor of Waxhaw.
I’m sure she will come up against much ugliness from one particular Waxhaw commissioner and her cohorts, but I am glad Lisa is stepping up and running for office. It’s about time someone brings back family values and honesty to our board. I am proud to say I will be voting for Lisa Thornton for mayor of Waxhaw. I hope that our current mayor is not foolish enough to run again, but if she does, I expect a landslide victory for Mrs. Thornton.
