Beam willing to make the tough decisions

This letter is in support of commissioner Ted Beam for re-election as a Blair County commissioner for another term.

Beam has been out in front making the difficult decisions that have placed Blair County in a strong financial position for the future. The county now has a sound financial base from which it can operate for many years to come.

While commissioner, Beam has made tough financial decisions, and he remains steadfast in his conservative votes on spending county funds. His votes on spending are based on lengthy conversations with financial experts and constituents.

Consider his vote to get the county pension funding problem under control. He voted to face the issue head-on and not pass the deficit on to future commissioners.

Beam is grounded in a common-sense approach to county government. Please join me in re-electing commissioner Ted Beam for a strong Blair County.
