With only seven weeks left until the November election, we have unfortunately seen an increase in negative campaigning and personal attacks, mostly occurring through the press and social media.
This needs to stop.
While there are clear policy and background differences between each candidate, one day soon this election will be over. At that point, we will still see each other on ballfields, the grocery store, and around town. If we keep this election focused on policy and not politics, Summit will be better off in the long run.
Mike Wattick is the Republican Candidate for Summit Common Council, Ward 2.
